We don't at the time of application, it says so on their website.
Sure, it says that on the "uApply" general website for admissions, but under "Transcripts" specific to the department:http://www.math.mcgill.ca/students/graduate/application
It seems to imply that we need mail 2 copies of the transcript. It's not very clear to me...and the department is not being responsive.
Since you upload the transcripts as part of the application, I went the "general" route and didn't send them official transcripts at this time. You can choose to play it safe, but I honestly do think they'll just evaluate our applications based on unofficial transcripts and ask for the official ones only if admitted. That's what most of the universities I applied to do, and I can't remember any of those that allow for an upload requiring an additional physical copy.
