Approved DNA Testing for Immigration
Recognized by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (C.I.C.)
Expedited, Economical, Available Nationally and Internationally
Base Cost: $390
Our laboratory will coordinate sample collections for applicants located in Canada or internationally, as required by the CIC. We will schedule appointments for all individuals to be tested upon receipt of your application. We will also contact the appropriate Canadian embassies for individuals located abroad. (Note: each embassy has its own scheduling procedures, which can influence how quickly we can set up an appointment.)
Once samples are received by our laboratory, results will be available within 3 to 5 business days.
In all cases, the Sponsor and Applicant must be tested. In more complex cases, we may also require DNA samples from additional individuals if we believe it will increase the likelihood of a conclusive result.
The regulatory requirements of C.I.C. make DNA testing a more complex process, but we offer the lowest composite client cost of $390, which includes expedited service.
The reunion of separated family members is a critical component of Canadian immigration policy. To ensure C.I.C. procedural compliance, or to discuss any specific needs of your family, please call 416-691-4167 (toll free: 1-877-842-4827).
