The Canada U-20 women's national soccer team is a youth soccer team operated under the Canadian Soccer Association. Its primary role is the development of players in preparation for the full women's national team. Their most recent major competition was the 2018 CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship.

History[edit]

Canada hosted the inaugural FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in 2002 (U-19 prior to 2006). They won silver led by future star Christine Sinclair, finishing runner-up to the United States in a close 0–1 extra time defeat. Two years later, Canada won the 2004 CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship, again on home soil in another final contested against the Americans. They would repeat the feat four years later in Mexico, defeating the United States to capture their second CONCACAF Women's U-20 title.

At the 2010 CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship, Canada lost a critical third place match to Costa Rica, eliminating them from World Cup qualification for the first time. Canada has not returned to the knockout stage of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup since 2004.
