Hey guys. I just got my packet three in the mail and I was wondering

I lived in a few different cities in Alberta, as well as now here in Ottawa

If I go to an RCMP here in Ontario, can they do the check for all the cities in Alberta I lived in or do I physically need to go to Alberta to be able to get those done?

any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Ditto. You can either go to the RCMP detachment or to your local police station (and ask for a Canada wide name check using the CPIC database). Quick tip: if you go to the suburbs, things are usually quicker. I got mine in St. Albert right outside Edmonton in record time :)

thanks, I'm in Ottawa and rely on city bus for transportation, but its going to be a while anyway, since I assume I still need Ontario health care to get the medical examination, which means I have to get it in gear to actually apply for that too.

did it cost anything for the RCMP Check?

you can't get your medical done through your regular doctor

it has to be done at approved clinics.

you get the list in your packet 3

and it's not free

------------------------------------------------------------------

yes, there's a fee for the rcmp check

i'm sure someone will post how much it is shortly

i know, i read the packet, there are 2 docs here i can go to , but I still dont have ontario health care, which I thinkI would need dont you think? or would my alberta health care be fine (ive been in ontario since november, no need to see a doc since)

i'm certainly not expecting any of this to be free. its an expensive process!

I'm not understanding..

What would you need ontario health care for with regards to your visa process?

As long as you have records of your vaccine history (from anywhere) you're fine when you go to the doctors that are approved.

No, the immigration examination is not covered by OHIP so it doesn't make a difference if you have Ontario Health coverage or not - you have to pay for the exam yourself. I don't know if your Alberta health plan will cover it either - I believe it isn't covered by any provincial health plan. What you can do, though, is if you need any of the vaccinations you can get them done before your immigration medical and they should be covered by your provincial health plan. As well, you should be eligible for OHIP by now - there is only a 90 day/3 month waiting period to qualify (unless they changed it recently).

Well what is it? 90 days or 3 months? lol ya too bad ur provincial health coverage doesn't cover the tab!! I'm pretty sure the $$ the Dr makes is pure under the table $$$$$ as most only accept cash, well at least the Dr in Halifax that was the case!! And lik eht other stated 1 Police check is all thats required, just ensure it is done Canada wide and in al the names you have used!!


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

Well that actually makes sense and saves me from needing the OHIP ASAP. (although I figure I should get it anyway)

Do you know how much it cost for the medical? And Where I would get copies of my vaccines if I don't have the little card they are all written on? (I know its somewhere, likely already in NY in my stuff....) but not accessible to me at the moment.

thank you so much :star:

Each Province has a health office that keeps the records. (Assuming you were immunized in Canada.) Give them a call. Ottawa doesn't charge for the Ontario records.

My police check was $30 Canadian and medical was $175 US. The immigration Dr. gave me my booster for free and filled out the vaccination form. I had my medical in London Ontario though. You should be able to check and see if either of the doctors listed have websites and what their fees are.
