Program Match Process


Dietitians of Canada coordinates the annual Program Match for post-degree internship/practicum programs. An online system is used to match applicant program choices with program rankings.

This is a very competitive program, and a limited number of positions are available. Fewer than 50 per cent of the candidates who apply are selected each year.

To participate, applicants must

  1. register in the online match program,

  2. prepare and submit an application package online, and

  3. pay the required application fee to each program they wish to apply to.

Applicants can purchase the access to the Program Match site beginning November 15, 2017.
