The application for the 2022 Canada SROP is closed.
We intend to communicate the results of the selection process by the end of March 15, 2022.
The deadline to submit this application was 11:59 PM PST on February 28, 2022, right before midnight on the west coast.
Please see the Frequently Asked Questions for information on the selection process.
Why is this form still open?
This form is being left open for 3 specific people to submit a late application. Unless you were invited to submit an application after the application deadline by Dr. Elizabeth Page-Gould through the CanadaSROP@utoronto.ca email account, then we will not consider any applications submitted now.
The reason is because we are already reviewing the applications and our promised 15-day turnaround cannot incorporate any new applications after we began Step 2 of our selection process (please see this FAQ post describing our selection process). The three people who received extensions received them because their applications were delayed due to administrative problems on our end.
That being said, we are sorry that we cannot accommodate any late requests, because we appreciate your interest very much and hope you check back next year!
After I submit an application, when will I hear from you?
We will contact all applicants with the decision on their applications no later than March 15th, 2022. We will only contact you earlier if there is a problem with your application, in which case we will reach out to fix it.
How are the responses stored and used?
The required demographic questions (i.e., related to Indigeneity and race/ethnicity) and your transcript will be used to determine eligibility for the program. The research statement, personal statement, and letters of recommendation are the components of this application that will be evaluated for admission.
The information you submit on this form is stored with SSL encryption on WordPress.com’s servers. They will be downloaded through an encrypted channel onto the Canada SROP Administrator’s computer. The files will be stored with encryption on the Administrator’s computer. Applications will be shared with the Application Review Committee and potential faculty supervisors of shortlisted applicants through University of Toronto’s secure One Drive system between March 1, 2022 and March 15, 2022. Members of the Application Review Committee and the potential faculty supervisors will be given a data security checklist.
We will store all application data for a period of one year from the application deadline date of February 15 (i.e., data stored until February 15, 2023). On February 15, 2023, we will delete all individual application data from our servers. We will save aggregated information from the submitted applications, such as the total number of applications and the percentages of applications representing different demographic groups.
