    A "medical examination" is a procedure or test usually given by a health care professional or in a medical setting that seeks information about an individual's physical or mental impairments or health. Medical examinations include vision tests; blood, urine, and breath analyses; blood pressure screening and cholesterol testing; and diagnostic procedures, such as x-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs.

    To protect the health and safety of Canadians, as well as reduce and prevent excessive demand on Canada's health and social services system, permanent or temporary resident applicants may be required to undergo a medical exam.
