How does the interview process work for applicants?

CaRMS posts the interview period dates for all programs in the interview calendar on You will be notified by the program directly if you have been selected for an interview. CaRMS does not set up interviews – program office personnel arrange interviews directly with applicants.

During the interview, neither applicants nor program interviewers must ask the other to make a commitment as to how they intend to rank the other. Doing so is in direct violation of the CaRMS contract.

Invitations to interviews, as well as other notices from programs will likely come via email. You should make sure that your email account is set up to accept emails sent in bulk, as well as those from addresses that are not in your address book.

If you decide not to attend a scheduled interview, you should contact the program in advance to cancel the appointment.

For more information, please consult our interview guidelines.
Formal process for interview complaints

CaRMS will act as an interlocutor to allow applicants to make specific complaints about problems encountered in their interviews. Please visit our interview complaints policy section for details.
