Default Medical for SOWP?

Hi Guys

We are wondering what the situation is with having medicals when applying for SOWP, other half has LMO and works in IT, therefore, from what we understand so far, will not require a medical when applying for TWP.

However, I have worked in the education system for the past three years and am applying for SOWP, along with OH's TWP and two student visa's for the kids.

Do I have to have a medical, even though I may not get a job in a school once we arrive in BC? Also, do the children (ages 7 & 9) require medicals aswell?

I have read alot of similar threads on the forum, but have found conflicting accounts - can anyone help?

We are still considering applying for TWP at POE next month, so are trying to iron out any possible creases while we can.

Thanks again.

I believe you won't need a Medical for an open work permit. It's not attached to any type of function or job, you might not be working at all, if choose not to.

It's not an expert opinion, and someone else in the forum might chime in to give you better information.

Good luck.

If the OP doesn't have a medical the SOWP will be restricted in that can't work jobs that involve medical, children and food.

Thanks for the replies so far... in that case does it mean I can have a medical once landed in BC?

Thanks
