SWIMMING CANADA STATEMENT
An integral part of Swimming Canada’s mission is to inspire Canadians to be active and healthy. Masters Swimmers are the embodiment of this. Swimming Canada recognizes that Masters Swimmers are magnificent ambassadors and advocates for our sport, both with their friends and families, and within the community at large. Whether training for fitness or to compete, all Masters Swimmers are an essential part of the Swimming Canada family.
Swimming Canada aims to provide the best possible support to the Masters Swimming community, working collaboratively with the provincial sections, to provide meet sanctioning, coach certification, official certification, club services, insurance, etc. Swimming Canada’s close relationship with our international partners provides recognition of Swimming Canada events and of our member Swimmers’ performances.

Welcome to the 2021-2022 season!
Excitement is in the air as we start another season and return to pools and swimming. A time to reconnect with old friends and make some news ones. Swim meets are slowly being scheduled and it is wonderful to see us getting back to our old habits. This may be the year to set new goals and try new things. A longer workout, a competition or even travel to international events.
Swimming Canada looks forward to the upcoming 12 months. The Canadian Masters Swimming Championships 2022 will be in Quebec City from May 20th to 22nd. There are plans underway for a Canadian Masters Open Water Swimming Championships in the summer of 2022.
As we have done in the past, we will be providing challenges, updates on competition results along with news of Canadian and World Record performances.
We look forward to hearing from you and having the pleasure of introducing you to the rest of our swimming community through our profiles. Please reach out to us to tell your story; whether about your path and love of masters swimming, or the great things your club is doing to raise the profile of masters swimming in Canada. To view our swimmers and clubs profiled in the 2020-2021 season please views our profiles page

We are pleased to announce that the 2022 Canadian Masters Swimming Championships will be held from May 20th to 22nd in Quebec City. We are excited to be returning to Quebec City for this event, which was last hosted there in 2017. The PEPS of the Université de Laval is a beautiful facility with two 25 m, 10 lane competition pools and a warm-up/cool down pool.
The City of Quebec provides spectacular scenery in the historic old city, a UNESCO World Heritage treasure. It is the only fortified city north of Mexico with over 400 years of history. The renowned restaurants of the City are sure to please all palates and the surrounding countryside is breathtaking and worth taking extra time to visit and enjoy.
