Effective immediately, if a candidate would like the AMF to communicate personal information on file to a third person, such as an employer, the new form will have to be completed by the candidate. The form is available on the AMF website in the section Forms for future professionals under three headings (Training, Examinations and Probationary Period). Please note that no other form of authorization will be accepted.
