What does “excessive demand” or whether my ailment would place an excessive demand on Canada’s health or social services mean?
This simply means that if your application were accepted there would be a significant burden placed on Canada’s health or social services due to ongoing hospitalization or medical, social or institutional care for physical or mental illnesses, or special education or training. Applicants may be denied admittance to Canada due to the high costs of their care and/or dependants. The factors considered during the medical assessment include whether or not hospitalization or medical, social or institutional care is required and whether potential employability or productivity could be affected by accepting your application. For example, a person with a serious disease or psychiatric disorder that would require ongoing care or hospitalization may be inadmissible because their requirements would place “excessive demand” on the Canadian health-care system.
