Powerchair Football Canada

Canada was the first country in the America's zone to play powerchair football. Development has slowed down lately, but our objective is to make the sport more popular across Canada. We currently have three provinces with competitive teams.


Powerchair football was initially played in late 1979 in British Columbia. It was played only in one province (British Columbia) until athlete from the province of Québec started to play in the early 2000s. The first national tournament was held in Québec in 2011 between the two provinces (BC and Québec). A third Province, Alberta,  joined in early 2010s. There are about 7 clubs in Canada.
