All applicants must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents at the time of application and must submit a notarized/certified photocopy of one of the accepted citizenship documents. Proof of citizenship must be current at the time of application and expired documents will not be accepted.

CaRMS has partnered with third-party organizations to automate the verification of citizenship/legal status required by postgraduate offices for entry into residency. All applicants who do not receive third-party citizenship verification will be required to upload and assign an acceptable proof of citizenship document. Please see additional information here.

Proof of citizenship must be submitted by the R-1 file review opening deadline unless otherwise indicated below.
