How to upload files to the secure file transfer system
Read all the instructions first
Please read the instructions carefully to make sure you're uploading your documents in the correct folder.
How to log in
Go to the login page to connect to the secure file transfer system.
Your username is your email address.
First time users: A temporary password was sent to you in an email titled "Account password." If you have not received the email, please check your junk mail folder.
Once you log in, you will be asked to change your password immediately.
Returning users: You can reset your password if you've forgotten it.
A note about accessibility
There are many ways to file supporting documents. You can also file documents with the Agency Secretariat by email, courier or fax if you have difficulties using the file transfer system.
What if I can't access the secure file transfer system?
If you're still having problems, please contact the Agency Secretariat.
How to upload files
Step 1: Click on "Secure Folders"
Once you've logged in, you will see several options. Click on "Secure Folders" to continue to the file upload system.
Step 2: Click on the folder that's related to your form
First time users: You will only see one folder. Click on the folder to open it.
Returning users: You may see more than one folder. Click on the most recent folder (at the top of the list) to open it.
Step 3: Click on the "Non-Confidential" folder
What if I have confidential documents?
If your case is being handled through adjudication and you filed a request for confidentiality, you must upload a public version of the document from which the confidential information has been redacted.
You can upload the public version in the "Non-Confidential" folder.
You must also upload a confidential version of the document, which:
- contains and identifies the confidential information that was redacted from the public version; and
- states "CONTAINS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION" on the top of each page.
You can upload the confidential version in the "Confidential" folder. The confidential version is only filed with the Agency at this stage in the proceedings.
Step 4: Upload your supporting documents
Click on the upload button to add your supporting documents to the "Non-Confidential" folder.
Step 5: Log out
Please click "Logout" in the top right corner.
This step ensures that the Agency is immediately notified about your documents.
How do I send my supporting documents to the other parties?
If your case is being handled through adjudication, your supporting documents will automatically be sent to any email address(es) that you entered on the last part of the form.
