What if my US citizen husband is refused PR?

Can he live with me in Canada, returning to the US for a day or two every six months?
I am Canadian.

Thanks

If your husband will be refused immigration visa on medical inadmissibility grounds
then he may always try to get Minister's Permit. It is not a permanent solution, but
a good temporary one and by the time he runs out of MP the new immigration law will
be implemented allowing granting PR status to spouses of Canadians even if they may
be found medically inadmissible on the grounds of being a substantial burden to out
health system.

Thanks so much Andrew. Great news. How can I apply for the Minister's Permit?

I think that would fall in the bounds of a specific consultation with an immigration
professional because the details of getting a Minister's Permit are unique to every
individual case. Sometimes a visa officer will offer to do it during an interview,
sometimes you must request. So much depends on the ACTUAL circumstances of your
individual case.

Stuart is perfectly right - each such case is unique and requires individual
approach. But in general in case like yours if your husband is found medically
inadmissible it shouldn't be a big problem to get Minister's Permit allowing
otherwise inadmissible person to enter and remain in Canada for the period specified
in the Permit. Under normal circumstances you should be offered MP option by
processing officer, but if not then you may request it during the interview as Stuart
suggested.

Thanks Stuart and Andrew,

Appreciate your direction on the Minister's Permit. We are arriving at the conclusion
that without PR we will probably remain in the US, settling close to the border so we
can easily visit Canadian relatives.

We had figured on maintaining US Medicare and going across the border for medical
treatment but that option probably out.

I doubt health insurance is cheap in Canada and we aren't willing to do without it.

So we will just wait for a couple of weeks and find what the PR decision is and go
from there.

Thanks again,

Barb

MPs are not automatic but are subject to a recommendation by the officer who reviews
the case. In addition the Regional office must agree and that takes time. If you are
destined to Ontario you will not receive OHIP and no insurance carrier will cover you
for pre existing conditions. In other cases the visa officer may refuse the
application, and you can appeal the decison to the Immirgation Appeal Division. You
are getting a way ahead of yourself thnking about MPs.
