TORONTO, June 21, 2022 -- The Canadian Backgammon Federation® is holding their third bi-annual National Championships in downtown Toronto during the 2022 Canada Day weekend. Members from across the country will meet to play for the Canadian Cup™ as well as both City and Provincial Awards.

The Canadian Backgammon Federation’s mission is to find every experienced Backgammon player within Canada and to develop a team capable of representing Canada at the World Championships in Monaco in 2025
