There are two Regional Championships, short course (25m) at the beginning of February and long course (50m) at the beginning of June. The 13 & over swimmers have both prelims in the morning and finals in the evening, while the 12 & under swimmers race each afternoon over the three day meets. 

New qualifying method:  qualify in 1, get 3 bonus / qualify in 2 events, get 2 bonus / qualify in 3 or more events, get 1 bonus (max of 7 events for short course and 6 events for long course)

The meets are long course (50m) and happen at the beginning of March and the beginning of July.

There are multiple levels of competition at the national level. The first meet of the season is Canadian Trials held in early April and has the toughest qualifying standards. Eastern/Western Canadian Open is held in late April with two age groups, 15 & under / 16 & over for females and 16 & under males / 17 & over males, over a four day period. Jr. Nationals take place in late July over a five day event and have difficult standards for many individual age groups (13 & under, 14, 15, 16, 17), but are raced as female 13-14 / 15-17 and male 14-16 / 17 & 18. Canadian Championships (Sr. Nationals) happen at the beginning of August and feature many of the best swimmers in Canada. All national events are long course (50m) and the time standards may only be achieved in long course (no converted short course times allowed).
