After a rocky start to the season in 2016/2017, Canada will be looking to improve off their 9th World Series Sevens ranking. Canada shocked fans in April, winning the Singapore Sevens Cup – their first ever Cup title. A month later, in London, Canada claimed bronze over the USA. While they didn’t qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics, their sights are set on the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the Sevens World Cup in San Francisco. Canada will be looking to improve on their late start to the 2016/2017 series in the upcoming 2017/2018 season.
Canada has more lakes than all of the worlds combined.
