Documents statuses

It is important that you verify your account to confirm the current status of each medical credential document sent to the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) for source verification.

  • To verify the status of your document from your account, click on Documents in the left panel, and select the specific document in the Documents panel (centre panel).

A message will be sent to your account advising you of any documents that require additional information or correction.

Once all the documents associated with your source verification request (SVR) have been reviewed by the MCC, your medical credential documents will be sent for source verification.

It is your responsibility as a candidate to check the status of each document throughout the source verification process.
