Overall, the imbalance between applicants from Canadian schools and internship positions in Canada was little changed this year. Compared to the 2014 Match, the number of registered applicants from Canadian schools increased by 6 (3%) to 193 applicants, while the number of internship positions in Canada increased by 2 (1%) to 168 positions.

A total of 151 applicants from Canadian schools were matched to an internship position in Phase I, while 29 applicants were not matched and another 13 withdrew or did not submit a Rank Order List. A total of 27 positions in Canada remained unfilled from Phase I.

This year, the number of applicants exceeded the number of positions by 25 (193 vs. 168).

Seven years ago, in the 2008 APPIC Match, the number of internship positions available in Canada (127) exceeded the number of registered applicants from Canadian schools (120). Since that time, the number of registered applicants from Canadian schools has increased by 61% (120 to 193) while the number of internship positions in Canadian programs has increased by 32% (127 to 168).
