The Canada women's national field hockey team represents Canada in international field hockey competitions. In 1991, the Canadian men’s and women’s programs united under the national umbrella of Field Hockey Canada to share funding and infrastructure, and to unite leadership - ultimately transitioning two programs, which had worked hard independently to succeed, into one national entity. The community has made tremendous progress and, with twenty years of lessons to draw upon, is now ready to launch new possibilities.[1] The women's team made its first international appearance at the 1978 Women's Hockey World Cup in Madrid, Spain, finishing in fifth place. They were the runner-up at the 1983 Women's Hockey World Cup and the bronze medalists at the 1986 Women's Hockey World Cup.

The Canadian women's team participated in the women's international tournament for the first time in 1956. In 1979 Canada hosted 18 countries in Vancouver for that world event; Canada placed 8th. The 1978 Canadian team was the first to enter the Women's World Cup, and placed 5th.
