The Canadian Professional Championship was a professional snooker tournament which was open only for Canadian players.


The championship was first played unofficially in 1980 with Cliff Thorburn defeating Jim Wych.

The first official Canadian tournament was played in 1983 when the WPBSA offered a subsidy of £1,000 per player to any country holding a professional national championship. Like other similar tournaments in Australia and South Africa, it was discontinued when WPBSA funding was withdrawn after the 1988/89 season.
