2021 R-1 Main Residency Match

If you have not previously participated in a CaRMS match, you can register starting July 8, 2020 at 12:00 (noon) ET.

You will notice that there are milestones and deadlines listed in this timetable. Milestones are simply recommended dates designed to help you keep your application on track during each phase of the application process. These milestones are not deadlines.

The 2021 R-1 match timeline is currently under review.

The Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) Resident Matching Committee (ARMC) is developing a new timeline that will see some milestones and deadlines shifted later in the year to accommodate schedule changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. A revised timeline will be posted once approved.

In the interim, the AFMC Board has made the following decisions regarding the 2021 R-1 match timeline:

  • The Last Day of the Application Period: February 7, 2021
  • The File Review Period: February 8 to March 5, 2021
  • The Virtual Interview Period: March 8 to March 28, 2021
  • The Second Iteration Match Day will be no later than: May 18, 2021
