2025 Pediatric Subspecialty Match

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.
