IRCC News: Medical inadmissibility – new changes are expected in April!

The Honorable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC) and his department will soon address the controversial policy that refuses immigrants deemed likely to cause an “excessive demand” on Canada’s health-care system.

<<Parliament’s Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration has recommended abolishing the “excessive demand” rules in Section 38 1(C) of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA).>>

Hon. Minister Hussen has stated that “the policy is out of step with Canadian values on accommodating people with disabilities” and the rules will soon be changed.
