Default Moving to Canada

I am taking my medical tomorrow, but just wanted an idea on the length of processing time it will take before I can leave for Canada!

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

There is no set time, and no way of gauging it. It could take one month or many. If you read through a few threads on medicals and subsequent issue of a Visa you'll see what I mean.

Largely depends what process you are following and where you are applying though. Would you like us to guess, or would you like to provide a bit more detail.

Given that you have to land within a year of taking the medical or else it expires we can say with some certainty "within a year"

If your wife is canadian and you dont mind not being able to work here for a bit you could leave for Canada on the next flight and apply "in country".

Not always though - people in the past have had to have medicals redone as they were about to expire and PR still hadn't been issued!

Or could still apply outland even if in Canada, which is much quicker (approx 3 months versus over a year).
