An immigration medical exam is valid only for a period of one year from the date the exam was taken. You’ll find the date on the up-front immigration e-medical document.

What to do if your medical has expired?
Step 1: You must complete a new immigration medical. Refer to the list of designated medical practitioners for your country on the IRCC's website.
Step 2: You must update the IRCC with your new medical exam via a visa office-specific webform submission. Please find your designated visa office’s webform on the IRCC's website.
Step 3: Verify in your MyIRCC Portal if your visa has been cancelled. If your visa has been cancelled, you do not need to submit a new application to the IRCC. The IRCC will update your file with your new medical exam and will “re-activate” your visa. You can verify the reactivation of your visa in your MyIRCC Portal.
Do not book travel to Canada until your visa has been re-activated.
