Mentions that:


"Of the 659 IMGs in Canada registered for the second iteration of the CaRMS 2002 match, 496 (75.3%) submitted a rank order list for training positions left vacant from the first iteration . . ."


So basically what that means is that 659 IMG's applied, but only 496 of them were able to get atleast one interview, making them eligible to submit a rank order list

In 2002, only 83 got a residency.


SO OVERALL it's:


83/659 = 12 %

TWELVE PERCENT!!!

12% chance of getting a crap 2 yr FP spot in rural labrador. . .



In 2003, CaRMS lists at:

http://www.carms.ca/stats/stats2003.htm

that 625 submitted a rank order list, but. . .

the total number of IMG's that applied was over 800

so in 2003, since only 67 matched, the actual match rate for IMG's is approx --> 67/800 = 8 %

Eight Percent.
