Do I need to provide a medical for my program and how do I go about it?

Programs that require a Transport Canada Medical: Marine Engineering, Nautical Science, Marine Environmental and Ocean Mapping (Diploma of Technology)
Programs that require a CAPP Medical: Remote Operated Vehicles and Underwater Vehicles

While these medicals have to be completed by an authorized physician when you come to Canada, we are recommending that you have a general medical completed in your home country to ensure there are no major medical issues that will inhibit the completion of your program. Failure in passing the required medical once you arrive in Canada will affect progression in your program.

In addition, if you have work term(s) you should obtain a Certificate of Conduct/Police Record Check in your home country, as your work term employer may request it. Nautical Science and Marine Engineering students will also need to obtain a Seaman’s Discharge Book/Service Book/Record Book from your home country prior to coming to Canada.
