SNC Statement

Swimming Canada has worked closely with MSC to establish an effective working relationship, however, consistent challenges have persisted, despite efforts from everyone to make the relationship fully functional.

Effective September 1, 2019, Swimming Canada will no longer facilitate registration directly with Masters Swimming Canada. Swimming Canada and our provincial sections will continue to register all masters members and affiliated clubs. This change will have little impact and members will still receive the full benefits of membership they have received in the past from Swimming Canada, including access to sanctioned competitions, insurance, and coach, official and club development. Those members who would like to continue to participate in the MSC programs can still register directly with MSC.

To support these changes, Swimming Canada will establish a dedicated position to support masters swimming and programming by September 1, 2019. Swimming Canada and our provincial sections are committed to continuing to serve our masters membership. Any questions on these changes can be directed to Swimming Canada at

We don’t have more information for the moment. Please contact Doug Hannum ( if you have any questions.
