The table below shows information for different nationals who can apply for the visa for Canada, when the programmes started and how many visa were available for the year 2014. You can assume that for 2015 the numbers and dates will be similar. Please note that as soon as a new programme has started, the new visa quota might be allocated within a few hours on a "first come, first served" basis. Some countries have two or even three rounds of quotas, which means that there are two or three start dates for the visa application.
