File Transfer Services


To send large files to one or more people, you can use one of these File Transfer Services. The following are commercial sites that offer file transfer service (either for free or for fee). We are not recommending these sites, but we are providing the list for your information. There are some caveats you should be aware of:
  • You are uploading your documents to an external server which may hosted in the USA or other countries. The information the university deals with is subject to the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FIPPA). To quote a university counsel's memo "University business should not be conducted on systems outside of Canada"
  • Transferring large files can take considerable time. Your computer's power saving options may stop spinning the hard drive & interrupting your file transfer
In no particular order, services available include:
