We’re happy to do immigration medical exams the same day, Monday to Saturday, at one of our two clinics. If you can’t find a time online, please call us.
The exams take about 30 minutes. Please note that in many cases your family doctor cannot perform the exam. This is because a doctor must be specially certified to perform immigration medical exams. Please bring a list of any medications you’re currently taking and any past or current medical conditions that required treatment from a physician specialist (ie. someone that your Family Doctor referred you to).
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to pay for the exam?
Yes. Alberta Health and Wellness and other benefit plans do not cover the cost of the immigration medical examination. We accept cash, Debit, Visa and MasterCard. Also, you will be required to pay for your laboratory work and X-rays separately to those providers.
How long does it take to get the results?
Does Medicentres perform Upfront Medicals?
Is the doctor a female physician?
What are the costs for the examination?

After the exam our doctors will provide you with a requisition, and you’ll need to have a chest X-ray ($50) and blood work done ($105).
