Why are there subspecialty disciplines in matches that don’t align with their primary specialty?

Training disciplines often reach out to CaRMS to provide match services as they see the value of participation in a national objective match process. However, creating a standalone match can be cost prohibitive, so joining an existing match that aligns with their current timeline allows training programs to reap the benefits of a CaRMS-facilitated match, without the additional customization service costs.
