Canada, H3A 0C8
Note: Due to disruptions in mailing and courier services caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the best delivery method for the time being is electronic. Many institutions are readily providing electronic copies of official transcripts and proofs of degree. These can be sent to officialschooldocs [at] mcgill.ca. If your institution is unable to provide electronic copies, printed copies of official transcripts can be submitted once mailing services resume, or once you arrive on campus this Fall.
