Little League World Series in Canada

Little League Baseball has been played in Canada since 1951. Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and Vancouver, British Columbia were the first leagues outside the United States. Approximately 500 leagues now operate in Canada, making it the second-largest country in Little League participation.[1] In 1952, Montreal, Quebec was the first foreign entry in the Little League World Series.[2] In 1953, Little Mountain Little League of Vancouver advanced to the World Series as representative of the Western Region. In 1958, Canada was given an automatic berth in the LLWS and have since participated in every tournament, with the exception of 1975. Until 1965, the Canadian region consisted of only teams from Ontario and Quebec.[3] Prior to this, the western provinces participated in tournament play with American teams in the Western Region, while the Maritime provinces were excluded. In 1965, Canada began play as a full region.

Canada has never won the series, but in 1965 Stoney Creek Optimist Little League of Ontario reached the final. Valleyfield Little League (Salaberry-de-Valleyfield) is the league with the most championships (8), while Glace Bay LL, Whalley LL (Surrey), and Trail are second with five.

Of the provinces where Little League-affiliated leagues operate, New Brunswick is the only one yet to be represented in the LLWS. The provinces of Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island have no leagues affiliated with Little League Baseball; the same holds true for Canada's three territories.
