Reference documents are an essential part of an application, so the applicants who’ve asked you to provide one are counting on you to submit it on time so it can be processed into their account before it’s time for programs to review references.

You can submit references electronically through the CaRMS Online referee portal.

The 2020 MSM timeline and reference deadlines will be available on April 15, 2020. The 2019 MSM reference deadlines below are for reference purposes only.
