The HRTO SmartForm Application and Response are now easier to use.

Previously, users needed to attach their completed SmartForm to an email. Now, SmartForms can be sent directly through the Internet, without an email account. Users will also receive an automatic confirmation with a reference number that includes the date and time of their submission.

People submitting an application to the HRTO or responding to an application have had the option of using the electronic SmartForm since 2008. SmartForms have several advantages over paper: users make fewer mistakes, the forms can be saved, printed and submitted electronically, and they are processed more quickly.
