Floorball Canada is the highest governing body for the sport of floorball in Canada. Floorball Canada is a self-governed organization which is recognized by the Government of Canada, Sport Canada, and the Canadian Olympic Committee.[2]

Floorball Canada organizes the Canadian Floorball Championships, Canada's elite-level national league (Canadian Floorball League) as well as the men's, women's, men's under-19, and women's under-19 national floorball teams. So far, three men's teams, one women's team, and a men's under-19 have been sent to take part in the World Floorball Championships. Floorball Canada will be hosting the 2016 Women's under-19 World Championships, to be held in Belleville, Ontario.


Floorball Canada is divided into four regional branches/federations: Alberta Floorball Association, British Columbia Floorball Federation, Floorball Ontario, and Québec Floorball Association. Floorball Canada's goal is to add three more regional branches: Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and an Atlantic federation, which would include the three maritime provinces and Newfoundland & Labrador.[3]

Floorball Canada has been an ordinary member of the International Floorball Federation since 2001. Canada was given membership as part of the IFF in 1998. As of June 30, 2008, there are 1,000[4] registered floorball players in Canada, which is five times the total of registered players in 2007.

Floorball Canada was originally known as the Canadian Unihockey/Floorball Federation and then for a short period as the Canadian Floorball Federation.
