The 2021 Canadian Long Track Championships presented by Intact Insurance will feature the country’s top skaters vying to be crowned national champion in each individual distance. The results from this event will help finalize the members of the National Team and NextGen Team for the 2021-2022 season, while also serving to select the skaters who will represent Canada on the World Cup circuit this fall. It is a critical first step for athletes looking to represent Canada at the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing. 

Each individual distance will be skated during this five-day competition, including the men’s and women’s 500m, 1000m, 1500m, 5000m and Mass Start, along with the women’s 3000m and men’s 10,000m. Athletes can qualify to be nominated to the 2022 Olympic Games Team through their performances at the four fall World Cup competitions, which are scheduled for Tomaszów Mazowiecki (POL), Stavanger (NOR), Salt Lake City (USA) and Calgary (CAN), or at the Olympic Skate-Off scheduled for December 27-31, 2021, in Quebec City. Skaters will be selected based on the criteria established in the 2022 Long Track Olympic Selection Policies and Procedures.
