The National, currently referred to as the Boost National for sponsorship reasons, is a Canadian curling tournament. It is one of the six events that are part of the Grand Slam of Curling tour, and one of its four "majors".[1]

The event features 15 men's and 15 women's teams. The top 14 teams on the World Curling Tour's Order of Merit qualify, plus a "sponsors exemption".[2] The 15 teams are divided into three groups of five teams, and each team plays the other four teams in their group in a round robin. The top eight teams overall advance to a single elimination playoff.[3] This format has been in place since 2015. From 2007 to 2014, the event had three pools of six teams each.
