What are all the different application streams in the subspecialty matches?

A match is comprised of different application streams (e.g., Particular Stream, Competitive Stream, Competitive MOH Stream, etc.). An application stream is defined as an allocation of positions based on eligibility and funding. Each province has criteria that must be met by applicants applying for positions within that province. Eligibility requirements differ from province to province, so you should carefully review the criteria when preparing to apply to programs.
