Default Spouse PR Sponsorship - Medicals for Canadian children?

Hello,

I am a Canadian citizen and am sponsoring my spouse for PR. So far so good. We have two children, both dual-British/Canadian passport holders who have been listed on the paperwork.

We've had AOR1, AOR2 and biometrics request and tonight got 3 messages in MyCIC requesting medicals for my wife (British) but also both children.

My understanding was that Canadians didn't need medicals - am I wrong, or is IRCC in error? If IRCC is in the wrong, what's the best thing to do?

Thanks!

IRCC are wrong. They are Canadian citizens pure and simple. Did you make that obvious in the paperwork AND include copies of their current Canadian passports? I suggest you message back and attach scnas of their Canadian passports.

I've checked my PR paperwork and I've not messed it up. Both kids are listed on IMM 0008, Citizenship as

1> UK - British Citizen 2> Canada

Their Canadian passport numbers are down on IMM0008 as well and passport scans were sent for IMM 5533 E – Part B SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS FOR SPONSORED PERSONS
1. Identity Documents, Travel documents and Passports.

I'll reply to the London VO's email address we received AOR2 from - I can't see any option of sending a message via MyCIC (unless I'm being stupid).

Ah, that’s where you’ve gone wrong - they shouldn’t have been included on IMM008 if they’re citizens. So because they were a medical request will have been sent automatically.

Maybe best to send a case specific email to get the medical request cancelled.

Good luck.

Ah, that might explain it. I have emailed LDN and I'll see what they say. Thank you.

No probs.

I'd also try a case specific enquiry - https://secure.cic.gc.ca/enquiries-r...e-cas-eng.aspx

Best of luck.
