How and where to submit your legal documents

Tips when scanning your documents:



  • Only standard non-encrypted PDF file formats will be accepted.
  • Documents must be machine-scanned, (smartphone) photographs cannot be accepted.
  • DO NOT crop, annotate, encrypt or otherwise digitally alter your scans. No annotations should be added on or around the image. Specifically for passport submissions, all edges of the passport booklet should be visible in the scan. For example, do not crop out the opposite page facing the photo page.
  • Resolution no less than 300 dpi. Maximum file size is 3MB per image.
  • The file name should be short with NO special characters such as the French circonflexe "ê" etc. We suggest using document type with your McGill ID number (e.g. birth certificate 260xxxxxx).
  • Indicate your name and McGill ID number in the subject line of your email.
