The Canadian Team Handball Federation, CTHF, is the governing body of team handball in Canada. It was founded in 1962[1] and joined the International Handball Federation the same year.[2]

The CTHF is a member of the Pan-American Team Handball Federation. The CTHF is made up of the following voting delegates: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland\Labrador. The Delegates are broken down into three categories. Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Quebec are full members with three votes at the AGM. New Brunswick and Manitoba are associate members with two votes at the AGM. And British Columbia, Ontario, and Newfoundland\Labrador are affiliate members with one vote at the AGM.

The CTHF sanctions two national tournaments in May of each year for two categories, senior (22 and over) and junior (21 and under), both men and women subcategories exist within each age category. The tournaments are hosted and organized by one of the member provinces. The winner of the tournament is awarded the title of National Champions for the year until the tournament is held again.
