Providing CaRMS with consent to share your data is a piece of the match participation process, to ensure applicants have the utmost control over their personal information.
If you give CaRMS permission to share your data with the AFMC, meaning you opt in, the AFMC will use the data to conduct research intended to improve the medical education environment in Canada.
If you consent, your data is only shared after Match Day, so your choice will have no impact on your application or match results.
You can make changes to your consent within your "CaRMS Online account - MY APPLICATION - Match Participation" section, up until the ROL deadline of the match you are participating in.
