I decided to call the Civil Aviation Medicine Branch of Transport Canada today to inquire about the status of my medical certificate application.
The person on the other end of the phone was extremely nice and helpful. All you need to do is quote your file number. If you dont have one (like me) because its your first time getting a certificate, just your name and date of birth is required.
They said they havn’t received the application yet! Wow! She suggested I call my doctor and ask them what is going on. I do it. Turns out there was some delay in getting my hearing test results to the doctor. The application was just sent out a few days ago they said.
I will call Transport Canada sometime late next week to make sure things are in order.
