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

History[edit]

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 Like other similar tournaments in Australia and South Africa, it was discontinued when WPBSA funding was withdrawn after the 1988/89 season.
