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’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 20, 2024 and April 9, 2025. 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 March 15, 2024 (i.e., data stored until March 15, 2025). On March 15, 2025, 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.
