How will my responses be 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 programme. The non-required demographic questions are being asked, because we are trying to both consider and track the diversity of our programme in terms of how BIPOC identity intersects with other identities that are underrepresented in academia. The research statement, personal statement, transcript, 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 SharePoint system between February 16, 2021 and April 30, 2021. 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, 2022). On February 15, 2022, 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.
