The pre-eminent all-Canadian sporting event will feature approximately 250 skaters in the men, women, pair, and ice dance disciplines, competing in three levels: senior, junior, and novice.
Athletes will vie for places on the Skate Canada National Team and the Canadian teams that will compete at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
