What is MyCreds™ | MesCertif™?

MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ is owned by the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC). It is a national credential wallet for post-secondary learners that has been created by Canadian higher education leadership. It represents an example of how ARUCC and Canadian colleges, institutes, and universities are committed to ensuring official and secure document exchange and adhering to the Groningen Declaration Network (GDN) principles, which emphasize, “Citizens worldwide should be able to consult and share their authentic educational data with whomever they want, whenever they want, wherever.” ARUCC became a signatory to the GDN principles in 2015 and the U of R became a signatory in 2019.

Why did the U of R join the MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ network?

The benefits to students and graduates are enormous. Not only does an individual have stronger control over who their documents are shared with, documents issued through the network are authentic, tamper-evident, and legally valid. Additionally, it will eliminate the time in processing your request, the time frame in mailing or couriering your document, the cost of couriering your document if your request is urgent, the potential of lost documents and, once issued, you will have 24/7 access to your documents.

How do I know my documents are secure and that my privacy is protected?

Documents are issued via the platform and stored securely in MyCreds™ | MesCertif™. Your data remains under the control of the U of R and this information can only be accessed by you, the U of R, and with whomever you chose to share your documents.

The underlying platform has been independently tested by security experts. All certified documents carry a digital signature that meets the legal standards set by the European Union for authentic electronic documents, which meets and exceeds requirements in Australia, New Zealand, and North America.

How will the receiver of my document know the document is authentic?

All certified documents carry a digital signature that meets the legal standards set by the European Union for authentic for authentic electronic documents, which meets and exceeds requirements in Australia, New Zealand, and North America.

An authentic document will always have a blue-ribbon symbol that validates that the document has not been altered after it has been downloaded.

If a document has been altered or if the digital signature is not authentic, a symbol with a red cross will signify the document is not valid.

What documents will be issued through the MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ network?

The U of R will be taking a phased approach to the documents that will be issued via the MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ network.

As of April 27, 2021 Official Transcripts and Confirmation of Enrolment documents are issued via the MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ network. Other documents will be phased in over time. Please refer to the schedule below for more information. This schedule will be updated as documents become available.
