Canada Immigration Update: Amendment in ‘Excessive Demand’ Under Medical Inadmissibility Rule

Ahmed Hussen, Minister of immigration, Canada along with his department has made a decision on removing ‘Excessive demand’ clause in Section 38 1 ( c) of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. The action plan is expected to be released in the month of April. The thought behind this change is a direct action on recommendation of a standing committee report on medical inadmissibility rules valid for immigrants that were tabled on 12th of December. 

Yesterday, before the committee, Hussen declared that the rules need to undergo a change.

“I have been very clear that this policy is out of step with Canadian values on accommodating people with disabilities,” Hussen said.

Mr Ahmed further promised that his department will respond to the committee’s recommendations by April 12.


What is Excessive demand?

Under Section 38 1 (C) of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, a prospective immigrant can be ruled inadmissible on health grounds if their health condition “might reasonably be expected to cause excessive demand on health or social services.”
