Some places let you place a request for a soon to expire domain, or will for a fee watch it and purchase it for you when/if it becomes available. These services are not usually cheap. As for it appearing to be still registered, a domain owner usually has 15-45 days depending on the registrar to reclaim their domain after the official expirey date. Until that grace period is ended the domain cannot be registered by anyone else. If it is a .ca, watch the To Be Released lists on CIRA's website and request the domain through your registrar when it becomes available.

Note that you may have to "bid" on it to actually get it.
