Default tricky medical/background situation

I am sponsoring my wife to return to Quebec with me - I've been living in
the States for several years and got married here. To save time on her
application we wish to apply from the outside, as soon as possible, moving
to Montreal in July and sending the appropriate visa office a change of
address form with our address in Quebec--my wife will have entered Canada
as a visitor.

I am a little uncertain about medical exams. If we are applying from the
States, I imagine we must have them done by a practitioner in the States.
But if they ask for medicals after we have moved, it will be a hassle to
come back and get them done here. So I thought we could get them done here
so they're all ready to go. But - I don't know whether teh results will
have "expired" by then, because I don't know at what stage the medical
info is requested. Could someone suggest when we should get the medicals
done so it all works out smoothest?

And a similar question re background checks - we've just had my wife
fingerprinted and are wondering whether it would be premature to send off
the background check request now - my understanding is that we don't need
to include this with the application, just to provide it when the visa
office asks for it? Please let me know if I've been misled on this.

Many thanks for any help, this looks like a helpful group and we're just
sorting all this out, so might need to ask some more questions later.

All best --Jim

In spousal sponsorship cases all must be included with application - please
read carefully all proper instructions. It includes receipt of medicals
being done and FBI certificate.

Ah! Thank you Mr Miller.

Do you know how long spousal sponsorship for Quebec is likely to take,
from initial recipt of sponsorship application in Buffalo to AIP? Can't
seem to find out how much longer the extra Quebec hoop will tack on to the
process. Thanks again and best wishes --Jim Cairing

Quebec hoop may add anywhere from few weeks to couple of months to the
process.
