Designated Occupations

Foreign workers in occupations where the protection of public health is essential require a medical examination. An employment authorization cannot be issued to them until they have passed the immigration medical examination. This applies to the following:

  • Occupations that bring the worker into close contact with people such as:

    • workers in the health services field, including hospital staff and employees, clinical laboratory workers, patient attendants in nursing and geriatric homes. medical students admitted to Canada to attend university, medical electives and physicians on short term locums;

    • teachers of primary or secondary schools or other teachers of small children;

    • domestic workers or live in caregivers;

    • workers who give in home care to children, the elderly and the disabled;

    • day nursery employees;

    • camp counsellors.

  • Agricultural workers from some countries.

Six month Rule

Applicants who intend to be in Canada for more than 6 months, and have resided in a designated country for more than 6 month within the year preceding their arrival in Canada, are required to undergo and pass a medical examination. The determining factor is not a citizenship, but whether the person resided in a designated country in the preceding 6 months.
