When Little League Baseball expanded the World Series to an eight team format in 1958, the Canadian Region was established. Despite the name, however, the region only encompassed leagues in Ontario and Quebec. Leagues in Western Canada continued to compete in the Western and Northern Region tournament structures, and leagues in Atlantic Canada could not advance beyond the Maritime Provinces championship tournament.
In 1965, the first all-Canadian champion was crowned. Western Canada champion East Trail, British Columbia traveled to Dundas, Ontario, to face the Eastern Canada champions from Stoney Creek, Ontario. Stoney Creek defeated East Trail 4-0 en route to Canada's best-ever finish, second place, at the Little League World Series.
The Canadian Region tournament is a seven-team, round-robin tournamen. Tournament participants include the provincial champions from Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec; a divisional champion from the Atlantic Provinces; a divisional champion from the Prairie Provinces; and the host league.
