Canadian Common CV (CCV) MyCCV logo

Spending days creating a Canadian Common CV (CCV)? More frustration than success?

Could your time be better spent on research?

Eliminate the management hassle by outsourcing the effort.


The Canadian Common CV (CCV) is being required by federal, provincial and research funding organizations (such as SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR, see full list here) in new applications for funding. Creating, managing and maintaining a copy of your CV in a single purpose database means challenges in being able to quickly and effectively respond to funding opportunities. This is on top of the various other formats and standards that organizations require, as well as the template used by your organization.

MyCCVTM was developed with the academic community in mind, to simplify and remove the hassle of creating and maintaining CVs. The MyCCVTM program, brought to you through a project between YPITData and the academic community, brings a hassle free way to create & maintain your Canadian Common CV. The value of your academic and research experience comes from being able to highlight to exceptional work and contribution you have made to your field. Spending hours retyping your CV should not be part of it.

With MyCCVTM, you are in control.

  • It Is YOUR Data – Ownership of information is squarely in your hands. Once we complete creating your CCV and you become another satisfied customer, we pull copies of all your data offline and purge our systems after 60-days. In addition, we will not share personal information with anyone without your permission while the data is in our hands.
  • Data Security – Ensuring your data is secure is not just the pinnacle of our business, it is the heart of our business. Through use of the latest data encryption and security protocols, your data is always safe and secure while in our hands.
  • Privacy – All access to your data is strictly controlled. Dedicated Specialists are assigned to support each client, so we know exactly which staff have access to your data at all times. From entry through QA/QC and beyond, protection of privacy is of utmost importance.
  • Homegrown Service – No need to worry about your private information going offshore. All data is created, hosted and maintained in Canada utilizing an all-Canadian labour force. Your peace of mind is important to us.
How does the process work?

We’ve made the process simple and easy to get your CCV prepared.There’s never been a better time to get a head start on your grant funding process!

  1. Sign up for MyCCVTM.
  2. Select the career package that matches your experience.
  3. You’ll receive instructions on how to submit soft copies of your current CV(s).
  4. One of our managers will review your material and follow-up by phone to clarify any information needed.
  5. A draft of your CCV is provided for your review/approval.
  6. Your CCV file is finalized and made ready for grant applications!
Now that I have it, how do I maintain my CCV?

If you’ve just presented a paper at a conference, published an article in a journal, hosted a gala exhibit of your latest work or chaired a Doctorate or Tenure review, then this information should be added to your CCV. Using the CCV website is not easy and remember making updates on a website rarely used certainly won’t be quick. The good news is you do have two great options available.

  • For any of life’s major events, simply send a new version of your CV and let us handle the rest. Our new “Update Service” will provide an easy way for your to have your CCV updated by letting our staff verify and synchronize all the data.
