Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team competes in both the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ and Women’s Olympic Football Tournament across each four-year cycle, with Canada looking ahead in 2018 to qualification to the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™. The Women’s National Team Program is led by head coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller.
Canada will compete in the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship from 4 to 17 October. The winner, runners-up and third-place side will automatically qualify for the FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019™. The fourth-placed side will face the third-placed side from CONMEBOL for a place in France.
In 2017, Canada posted an international record of seven wins, two draws, and three loses in 12 international matches while also extending their 2016-17 unbeaten home streak to five matches including the 1:1 draw against USA in November 2017.
OLYMPIC MEDAL WINNERS & CONCACAF CHAMPIONS
