I suggest you get tested a second time before the August examination to be certain. If you are HIV positive then you will need some medical services, perhaps extensive services, and Canadian authorities may not admit you based on that. During the medical, I don´t know if they test for HIV/AIDS but you are supposed to disclose such in formation in the application. Lying, if found out later (like a year from now, while in Canada with a PR), could get you into trouble.

This is just guess

If you hide the fact and later on they come to know but how ???
How they will sure when it happened ??? Any body after landing also can be HIV + ???

But as per my knowledge In medical they will test your blood for + or -

All the Best

I don´t think you are going to have to worry about lying, as your medical test are going to confirm you being HIV positive. Whether you lie or not, you medical examiner is going to tell CIC the truth.

CIC says you cannot pose a health risk to Canadians, nor put too much pressure on the health system. You should be prepaired for CIC to deny you your PR. I can´t say for sure that it will happen, but they could put up a very strong arguement that HIV poses both a threat to Canadians and to the Canadian health care system.

Just be prepared, because you are at serious risk of having your PR denied based on your medical condition.

I mean, no one can say for sure whether or not you will be accepted, but CIC has the legal right to deny you based on you medical state, and HIV can give them a pretty good arguement in which to base their decision.

I hope everything works out for the best...

unfortunately, I think Dave is right. there is not point in giving you false hope. The worst that can happen is that CIC says no. However, I would continue because family class applications sometimes have different consideration. Regardless of the outcome, I wish you good health and long life.

Worried... are you the principal applicant, and the other family members you mention "accompanying" you on your application?

If this is the case, I doubt accompanying family members are given PR status if the principal applicant is denied.

You said you were being sponsored under family class... can your family in Canada sponsor your other family members individually? Please give more details or your case.

Dave

Karen Rose,

I agree with you in principal, but you failed to consider:

1. Worried does not have Canadian Civil Rights on his side, as he is not a PR or Canadian citizen. Nor does he have Canadian law on his side, as the immigration law clearly states the health criteria.

2. International Human Rights covers the issue of refugees, but does not dictate any country´s immigration policy. Denying someone the right to immigrate does not violate their rights as a human being. I don´t think there is anything covered under Human Rights that state that everyone has the right to immigrate to Canada, regardless of Canadian immigration law.

Again, I agree with you in principal, and wish this was better world, but I am affraid worried has very few "rights" in this case.

Dave
