On April 20, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the new cost threshold for excessive demand for health and social services. This is the number of funds the government interprets as acceptable to cover the medical expenses of the new immigrants from the taxpayer’s money. According to the update, the average Canadian per capita health and social services cost is $7,266, and 3 times that average is $21,798. This means permanent resident applicants whose medical demand is below this figure will be considered admissible to Canada based on medical exams.
