Medical Inadmissibility

Resolution number
  1. Permanent residence applications are often refused by IRCC for reasons of medical inadmissibility;
  2. Those refused include applicants with family members with disabilities;
  3. A disability is not a health condition,
  4.  A disability is one of the grounds with Charter protection; 
Therefore be it resolved

that the CCR:

  1. Take the position that people with disabilities should not be inadmissible for health grounds;
  2. Call upon IRCC to review Section 38 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and the procedures and guidelines of medical inadmissibility for discriminatory content against persons with disabilities.
