What's New

(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, and Ontario officials subsequently also cancelled the Ontario provincial tournament due to the impact of the pandemic within the province. Tournament competition will be held in other areas of Canada as conditions allow.

The Ontario Provincial Tournament

Little League Baseball came to Ontario in 1952, just one year after the first Canadian charters were granted to leagues in British Columbia and Nova Scotia. The Parkdale Lions Little League in Toronto's West End -- which today operates under the High Park Little League name -- was one of the original Ontario leagues, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2001.

Ontario's first two districts were formed as leagues were chartered throughout the 1950s in the Toronto/Hamilton and Ottawa areas. The champions of these two districts faced each other in a one-game playoff for the provincial championship in the mid-to late 1950s. Until the Canadian Region was formed in 1958, the Ontario champion faced teams from Eastern U.S. states in post-provincial competition leading up to the Little League World Series. Later, Ontario's champion met the champion of Eastern Canada (Quebec/Maritime Provinces) for the right to advance to the Little League World Series.

Today, Ontario has eight districts, and the champions of these districts compete alongside a host league at the provincial tournament for the right to advance to the Canadian Region tournament. Ontario expanded from three districts to five during the 1960s, added two more districts in the late 1980s, and added an eighth district with the creation of the Ottawa River Valley district in 2002.

The Ontario provincial tournament was originally a single-elimination event, but has used either a double-knock-out or round-robin format each year since 1969. Twelve Ontario champions have competed in the Little League World Series, including East Nepean Little League in 2013. The 1965 Stoney Creek Optimist Little League all-star team finished as the Little League World Series runner-up, Canada's best-ever finisher in the international tournament. Thunder Bay's Port Arthur Continental Little League also won the Canadian championship in 1975, when international teams were not invited to the Little League World Series.
