Swimming Canada: 2023 Eastern and Western Championships and beyond

As of March 2023, Eastern and Western Canadian Swimming Championships will move to mid-March and take place prior to Canadian Swimming Trials. This decision has been taken to provide better progression from Provincial Championships in early March over East/West competitions to Trials in early April. This will also provide a better training block for swimmers after Eastern/Western Championships to prepare for the summer competitions.

This will be officially communicated by Swimming Canada in early May 2020.
