The Canadian Open, currently referred to as the Meridian Canadian Open for sponsorship reasons, is an annual bonspiel, or curling tournament. It is one of the seven Grand Slams and four "majors" on the World Curling Tour, and the only one to use a triple knockout format. A women's event was introduced in the 2014–15 curling season.

The event features 16 men's and women's teams. The top seven teams on the World Curling Tour Order of Merit ranking and the top seven on the WCT Year-to-date ranking qualify, plus the winner of the previous Tour Challenge Tier 2 event plus a sponsor's exemption.[1]

The event has had its current format since 2014.
