Default Change in Medical Condition before Landing

I applied for Permanent Residence in October 2001, skilled worker to Buffalo. I've been granted an interview waiver and completed my medicals in October 2002.

I'm currently living in Canada on a WorkPermit with my Common Law Partner who is a Canadian Citizen. (CIC has all his information.)

If I have a change in medical condition (nothing communicable, but potentially draining on the healthcare system), do I need to notify Buffalo? Will I be asked medical related questions at landing?

Thanks for any input.

Default Re: Change in Medical Condition before Landing

Yes, you must notify visa post about any material change of your case,
including change in medical condition. And yes, you will be asked during
landing about any material changes since your application. See how
Immigration Manual describes in brief examination of immigrants landing at
port of entry:

----------------------------------------------------------------
12.2 Examination of foreign nationals with permanent resident visas

When an applicant in possession of a permanent resident visa applies for
landing at a port of entry, the role of the immigration officer is to:

? Verify the person's identity;

? Confirm that information on the permanent resident visa is correct;

? Establish that the applicant complies with all requirements of the Act and
Regulations and is not inadmissible;

? Confirm that the applicant?s marital, common-law, or family status has not
changed since the issuance of the permanent resident visa;

? Confirm that the applicant and their dependants (whether accompanying or
not) still meet the requirements of the class of immigrants under which the
permanent resident visa was issued;

? impose and explain any appropriate conditions;

? welcome the new permanent resident to Canada and provide information about
programs and services available to assist in integration into Canadian
society.

The Regulations require that a foreign national in possession of a permanent
resident visa who is presenting themselves for landing, must inform an
officer:

? if their marital status has changed since the visa was issued (R51(a)(i));

? of any other facts relevant to the issuance of the visa that have changed
since the visa was issued, or that the foreign national failed to disclose
at the time the permanent resident visa was issued.(R51(a)(ii)).

If an officer establishes that the foreign national is inadmissible and that
a change in the relevant facts is evident, the officer may prepare a report
under A44(1). For more information on report writing, refer to [ENF 5,
Writing section 44(1) reports].

This is not a black and white question but shades of gray. Without
knowing the diagnosis and prognosis it can be difficult to advise. For
example if you are in a CL relationship and it may be better to cancel
your applcation and reapply in the CL group as medical condition may
not affect your application.
