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.
Please refer back to this timetable regularly, as dates are subject to change.
Applicants may begin the application process, including sending reference requests through CaRMS Online.
References must be submitted by this date to give applicants enough time to assign them to programs before the opening of file review.
If applicants would like these documents to be translated by the CaRMS-facilitated translation service, they must be submitted before the translation request deadline of August 8, 2022 at 17:00 ET.
