Medical Examination

Medical Examination for International Students

Transport Canada requires all aviation personnel,  to hold a valid medical certificate issued by an approved Transport Canada medical examiner.

In the case of absence of an approved doctor near your location, the exam can be done upon arrival in Canada.

In order to make sure you will be able to pass the examination, you can talk to your physician to check your health prior to your journey to Canada.

Additionally, your doctor can access the Transport Canada Civil Aviation Medicine - FAQs to learn about how our examiners assess specific medical conditions.
