I feel like my life is ruined. Please tell me how to change conditions in study & co-op work permit

Hello,

Just recently I received biggest shock. Please help me out. I am really tensed.

Little background: I am a Physiotherapist. I have completed my BPT from India. Right now, I am studying Fitness and Health program in Humber College, Toronto, Ontario

I am also having one year of experience working in Physiotherapy field in India. My resume is pretty decent.

Now, the thing is..

I was applying for part time PTA (Physiotherapy Assistant) positions and I was getting calls from many clinics and employers. All of them were impressed by my work, knowledge and skills.

After lot of hard work, I finally got a job from one reputed clinic in Toronto.

They assigned me shifts and patients.

But...

After few days, I received an email from them..

"Hello,

Upon closer inspection of your study permit, there is a clause that states you cannot work in heath related field.

At this time, we cannot put you into any shifts because of that"

I literally started crying. I checked my study permit and co-op work permit on the spot.

It has this..

Conditions:

1. NOT AUTHORIZED TO WORK IN CHILDCARE, PRIMARY/SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHING, HEALTH SERVICE FIELD OCCUPATIONS.
2. MUST LEAVE CANADA BY ----/--/--

I felt broke. I am feeling depressed.

I am studying into health program. Why can't I work in heath related field. What's the point if I can't do my internship in health related field.

I asked all my friends who came with same route. They only have second condition which is "MUST LEAVE CANADA BY...". All the foreign students have this condition in their study permit.

However, it seems that it's only me who has the first condition. Why only me, God?

Please help me out people.

My main question is..
Is it possible to change the conditions in the study permit and co-op work permit?
If yes, how can I do that? Do you know similar case of someone?
Do you know anyone who managed to get the conditions changed?

I seriously can't imagine myself into any other field than Physiotherapy. I love to cure peoples physical body problems.

I seriously need your help in this situation guys.

Please suggest me some ways.

Isn't there a contact number or email on your work permit?

Don't ask redflagdeals. Go directly to them to ask why condition number 1.

A quick Google search for "not authorized to work in childcare in Canada" turns up links like:
https://canadaworkpermit.com/work-in-ca ... f=1&t=8465
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre ... =844&top=4

Which indicate that you may have not taken a entry medical exam. And to get that condition removed, you may have to pass that medical exam. From the second link I posted:
If you are already in Canada, you must:
•Undergo an “up-front” medical exam, which means that you are getting a medical exam before you have been asked to do so by a visa officer.
•Submit an application to change your work permit conditions, with all required documents, and request to remove the appropriate conditions, for example: not authorized to work in childcare, primary/secondary school teachings, health service field occupations.
Your friends may have already taken their medical exams, which is why they only have the second limitation.

You should call your immigration lawyer back home - someone may have messed up the paperwork. In the meantime, you can also call the Federal Government they maybe able to help you get through the red tape and fix your Visa.

Thanks for taking time and mentioning the resources.

However, the thing is. I have done medical exam back in my home country and I passed in it.

Your visa do not get processed until you pass the medical exam.

Even after passing the medical exam, I got the condition. I did the medical exam from the same hospital where my friends did it. That's the issue.

The links I posted have contact information. Start there.

Is it at all possible that you wouldn't pass some equivalent of a vulnerable sector check? Or would they not let you into the country at all if that were the case?
