This depends on the type of the congenital anomaly. Some congenital anomalies are very common and asymptomatic such as ventricular septal defect VSD and atrial septal defect ASD, which I guess your child has. Other anomalies such as tetralogy of Fallot or anomalies related to cardiac valves can be potentially serious.
As long as your child is asyptomatic and can cope with the anomaly, I assume there will be no problem. His problem will not pose a risk to the community, as well. CIC is concerned about the diseases which are contagious or risky to the population or the diseases, e.g. AIDS and other STD or those that require costly long-term management such as diabetes mellitus and heart ischemic diseases. Therefore, I think there might be no problem but they might ask for additional medical tests from a specialist (pediatric cadriologist). Hope this helps. Wait and you will see.

More or less similar kind of problem with me too. My kids are having Thallasemia (Intermedia). They are healthy enough. But, I have studied various cases of Federal Court as well as Supreme Court too. They also consider the excessive demand on the health system. The expected expenses for the child should not be more than ave.exp.per year per canadian. (Approx. $ 6000-00). They consider for next 5 years and 10 years span. In one of the judgment Hon. Judge make a comment that to treat sickel cell anamiea patient requires no more expenses but for by-pass sugery/open heart surgery sp. expenses are involved. Based on such judgment/s or observations CIC offices are deciding the merits of the case.
In my case I have completed the medical ( with two more repeated request )and waiting for the results.
for more details read in this forum : " Inadmissibility - Thalassamia " June-2008 posting.
Good Luck....
