This Week’s Success Story: Overcoming Medical Inadmissibility – Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Global Developmental Delay
We were recently successful in responding to a procedural fairness letter to IRCC for medical admissibility for a family member in temporary residence applications to work in Canada. The family member had spastic cerebral palsy and global developmental delay. Our office responded highlighting the changes made to medical admissibility considerations by way of the Department’s public policy introduced in 2018 in connection with the Department’s concerns with the identified social services, as well as addressing any remaining medical services required as a result of the underlying condition. With this, we advanced that the dependent applicant would not cause an excessive demand in Canada for his reasonably required medical and social service care in consideration of the public policy, and the family’s plan. We are pleased to report that the dependent applicant recently received the required visa to enter Canada.
