The du Maurier Classic[a] was a women's major championship from 1979 till 2000, and is still a LPGA Tour golf tournament called the Canadian Women's Open, which has been in existence since 1973. This event has always conducted in stroke play competition by the Royal Canadian Golf Association (RCGA).[1]

Pat Bradley holds the record for the most victories when the tournament was a major, with three, and Bradley had the most consecutive wins with two.[1] The lowest under-par and aggregate score achieved while a major was Brandie Burton's 270 (–18) in 1998, which just happened to be her second duMaurier Classic win and only the second along with Bradley to ever accomplish the feat.[1]
