The 1996 Canada Cup was the second edition to take place and was hosted by Edmonton. It was a women's rugby union competition and featured New Zealand, France, the USA and the hosts, Canada. New Zealand had missed the previous World Cup in 1994 and, aside from a couple of games against an untried Australia, had played no international rugby since 1991, when they had lost to the USA in the World Cup semi-finals. Despite this they won all three games they played and won the tournament.
