Reference form

Please forward the link below to your chosen referees and ask them to complete the form:

  • Two reference forms are requested 
  • The reference forms can be completed in English or French

Your referees should know you sufficiently well in your professional environment to be able to complete the form in a meaningful way. 

We attach greater value to a recommendation from a person who knows you well over one from an individual in a senior position, but who only knows you casually.

Your referee should not be a member of your family, and at least one of the references must be completed by someone in your current work environment. 

Please make sure you allow enough time for your referees to complete the form.
