2023 Match Fees

All fees are listed in Canadian dollars and are subject to applicable taxes based on province of residence. Fees must be paid from within CaRMS Online using one of the accepted methods of payment: Visa, Mastercard, Visa Checkout, Mastercard Masterpass, Visa Debit, or Mastercard Debit.

Match participation fee
All applicants pay a match participation fee.
Program application fee
Applicants pay a program application fee for each program to which they apply. There is no minimum or maximum number of programs to which applicants must apply.
Verification fee
All applicants who did not graduate from a Canadian medical school must pay a one-time verification fee.
Document return fee
If you submitted original hardcopy documents to CaRMS, you can request that they be returned to you by emailing documents@carms.ca. Please note that due to our document retention policy we can only honor document return requests made within 30 days of the end of the match. Please note that we do not return letters of reference or documents that were created online or uploaded, or those provided by a third party source (i.e., a referee or university). Documents will be returned to the address provided during registration, unless otherwise indicated and are guaranteed to be returned to you within six months of your return request date.
$30.00 (Canada)

$56.00 (United States)

$121.50 (International)

Translation service fee
Applicants can request translation of select application documents through CaRMS Online. Translation of eligible documents is subject to a flat fee per document, based on average document length. This service is only available to applicants submitting bilingual applications.

Reference: $128.75

MSPR: $309.25

Medical school transcript: $257.50

Administrative fee
The administrative fee is charged for any service provided by CaRMS that is beyond our regular services and their associated fees.
Examples include:

  • Application and/or document transfers to an institution outside of the match process
  • Requests for the creation of records after file review

Note: The administrative fee is a per-instance fee. For example, if an applicant requests that a document be transferred to three third party institutions, they will be charged the administrative fee three times, once for each transfer.

*The fee is determined by the complexity of the request. $55.00 is the minimum amount that will be charged.

Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) handling fee
CaRMS acts as the Dean’s office for Canadian medical students and graduates applying to positions through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) in the United States. Applicants wishing to participate in the US match must register with CaRMS and pay the ERAS application fee.

For tax purposes, CaRMS’ GST number is 125712174 RT. Please note that because CaRMS provides an application service and not actual educational services, it does not meet the eligibility requirements to be certified as a private education institution and is therefore unable to provide official tax receipts.


CaRMS is a not-for-profit, fee-for-service organization. As such, all fees for registration and application, including those received from applicants who later withdraw or go unmatched, are non-refundable.

If you have any questions regarding CaRMS’ fees, please feel free to contact us at help@carms.ca.
