(June 2021) -- Following consultation with an outside advisory committee, Little League Baseball has announced that the 2021 international tournament will be limited to leagues from the United States given the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. While other countries are encouraged to hold tournament competition where local health conditions permit, Little League Canada officials have cancelled the 2021 Canadian Region tournament given the public health situation that is severely impacting some areas of the Dominion.
Tournament competition will be held in some areas of Canada, but will end at the provincial or district level. The 2022 Canadian Region tournament is scheduled to be hosted by Rocky Mountain Little League in Calgary, Alberta.

When Little League Baseball expanded the World Series to an eight team format in 1958, the Canadian Region was established. Despite the name, however, the region only encompassed leagues in Ontario and Quebec. Leagues in Western Canada continued to compete in the Western and Northern Region tournament structures, and leagues in the Maritimes could not advance beyond the Maritime Provinces championship tournament.
In 1965, the first all-Canadian champion was crowned. Western Canada champion East Trail, British Columbia traveled to Dundas, Ontario, to face the Eastern Canada champions from Stoney Creek, Ontario. Stoney Creek defeated East Trail 4-0 en route to Canada's best-ever finish, second place, at the Little League World Series.
The Canadian Region tournament is a seven-team, round-robin tournamen. Tournament participants include the provincial champions from Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan; a divisional champion from the Atlantic Provinces; and the host league.
