I'm from Canada, and two years ago I had problems with my wife and decided to divorce. After that, I felt discomfort, and I was diagnosed with depression.

I took an antidepressant Effexor for one year. But another doctor decided to stop my medication because he believed that it was normal to be sad after divorce, and I lm not a depressed person! so I have taken no medication in the last year. I think that the first doctor had made a mistake by giving me this medication.

Should I still be able to qualify for a medical 1 in Canada?

    $\begingroup$ This question is different from Will having a history of depression prevent me from flying?, which is asking about the USA. This question is about Canada. $\endgroup$ – Daniele Procida Jun 30 '19 at 7:27

    $\begingroup$ @DanieleProcida While you are right that this question is specifically about Canada and the linked duplicated is about the US, I don't think the answer will be any different. The linked question is answered with ask an AME because every case is different and this cannot be answered by strangers online, so that is what you should do in Canada as well. $\endgroup$ – Bianfable Jul 1 '19 at 7:04
