The CTIF site provides a number of PDF (portable document format) documents. Some browsers have the capability to open PDF documents built-in. Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to view these documents if you are using older computers or web browsers.
Our fillable PDF files (Expression of Interest form and Application Form) need to be downloaded to be filled out.
Once Acrobat Reader is installed, you have two options to view PDF files from this site.
Saving PDF files to your Local Computer for Editing
You can download the PDF to your computer for viewing or printing, now or at later date. Saving a larger file to your hard drive is the best option, particularly if you do not have a fast Internet connection.
Chrome and Firefox
Right mouse click the link and select “Save Link As.” Follow prompts to save the file to your location, taking care to recognize where you saved the PDF file. You may then open it within Acrobat Reader.
Right mouse click the link and select “Save Target As.” Follow prompts to save the file to your location, taking care to recognize where you saved the PDF file. You may then open it within Acrobat Reader.
Either control+click or click and hold the mouse button down on the link until the menu pops up. Select the item from the menu that indicates it will “save” or “download” the file to the disk. Select the file type before you click OK (the file type should be PDF or source, depending on your browser).
Download times will vary, depending on your Internet connection and other personal hardware issues.
Once you have opened the file, you can fill in the forms and then save it (you may have to save the file under a new name). Then, use our Contact Form to attach the application and mail it to us.
Opening PDF Files in your Web Browser
Some browsers allow you to open a PDF right in your browser for viewing. You should fill in/edit the file, then save it locally so it can be sent.
Chrome and Firefox
Both Chrome and Firefox have the built-in capability of reading PDF documents. You may simply click on the link for the PDF file and the file should open within your browser. Once filled out, right click over the document and click “Save File As” to save the filled out form locally.
Once you have Acrobat Reader installed, you may simply click on the link for the PDF file and the file should open within your browser. Once filled out, right click over the document and click “Save File As” to save the filled out form locally.
Caution! Attempting to open a very large PDF or using an older browser may result in complications. Revert back to Option 1 should you encounter problems.
If the file opens in the browser, you should be able to fill out the form fields. Then, right click the document to save the filled out form locally on your computer. Once saved, please use our Contact Form to attach the file and send in your application.
