A Marine Medical Examination may only be carried out by a designated Marine Medical Examiner.
If assessed as fit, a Provisional Marine Medical Certificate (valid for 6 months) will be issued to you immediately. The permanent certificate will be mailed to you from Transport Canada, Ottawa. The validity period will be for 2 years, commencing on the date that the initial medical examination was performed.
At each medical, a new Marine Medical Examination Report needs to be completed. You will be asked to complete a form and you will be required to add your demographics. Questions must be answered regarding family history, medical history, including substance abuse, over the counter drugs, prescription drugs, and alcohol intake. Our staff will check your height, weight, blood pressure, distance and colour vision, hearing, and urine. We encourage our clients to bring with them 2 pieces of government ID, list of medications or a print out from their pharmacy, any relevant medical reports that my support your success in passing this exam.
