The 42nd World Bridge Teams Championships are held in India from September 26, to October 10, 2015.

CBC Changes

In response to feedback from our members, the CBF Board of Directors voted to introduce several changes to the Canadian Bridge Championships (CBC), starting with the 2016 CBC in Toronto. As a result of some of the changes, the CBC will now be held over a 9 day period instead of 8 days previously.

The changes aim to make the CBC more appealing to Canadian bridge players of all levels; to reduce the cost of participation in the major team championships; and to enhance the format of some of the team championships.

Canadian Online Team Championships

Registration is now open for the new Canadian Online Team Championships to be held on Bridge Base Online. The championships are open to CBF members and will consist of five divisions; Open, Women, Flight-B, Flight-C, and 299ers. The championships are not sanctioned (i.e. no masterpoint awards), however there are prizes for each member of the winning team in each division.

Registration is open until September 30, 2015.

CBF Memorabilia

We have recently added several interesting articles and press clippings (primarily from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s) to the CBF Memorabilia library in the Members Only Section. These articles mostly highlight the achievements of Canadian greats, such as Eric Murray and Sami Kehela, during that time period.

Bridge Canada Magazine

The October issue of Bridge Canada is now available with 40 pages of articles, quizzes and more! The magazine is available in both English and French and can be accessed by selecting Bridge Canada from the “Members Only Section” menu.

New CBF Webmaster

In addition to the ongoing responsibility of maintaining the CBF website and the CBF’s presence on social media, André and his team will be instrumental in introducing and maintaining the French version of our website. We thank Jude Goodwin

Support Our Kids

Recognizing that the future of our game depends on attracting young players, more and more effort is being spent to introduce bridge at schools. One indication that such efforts are yielding significant results is the annual School Bridge Day held as part of the Toronto Easter Regional. In 2014, the event, the brainchild of Flo Belford, attracted 440 students!
