The Canadian national bandy team is the bandy team representing Canada. The team is overseen by the Manitoba and Canadian Bandy Federations, members of the International Bandy Federation. The team has competed in the Bandy World Championships several times starting in 1991.
At the Bandy World Championship 2010 Canada won Group B for the first time. Canada, however, lost the Group A qualification match against the United States by a score of 9-6, and thus will again play in Group B at the Bandy World Championship 2011 in Kazan, Russia. For this Championship Canada's team included 4 players playing professionally on club teams in Sweden.
