February 2014 Update: SGAC has learned that requirements to be considered for the Canadian Match (CaRMS) has changed in recent months to encompass usage in all provinces (as opposed to only Ontario in years past). While many Canadian students may be aware of this, we wanted to ensure formal broadcasting of the message. Our understanding is that to be able to sit for the NAC (information here) examination in September (thus being eligible for CARMS 2015), students need to take the MCCEE examination (information here) by this coming March. As always, SGAC encourages students to contact Dr. David Santone (OCG forCanada) with any questions.
