To participate in the CSTC, a player must meet the World Bridge Federation (WBF) minimum age requirements. A player must be at least 61 years of age in the year the World Championship will take place.
The age requirement for Senior players is being gradually raised to 65 in accordance with the following schedule.
- On January 1st, 2022 the minimum age will be raised to 63 years of age
- On January 1st, 2024 the minimum age will be raised to 64 years of age
- On January 1st, 2026 the minimum age will be raised to 65 years of age
Participants in the CSTC must be paid up members in good standing of the CBF. Teams must pre-register, and pay the entry fee, by the deadline published in the documentation. No club qualification is required.
Upon ratification by the CBF board of directors, the winning team receives a subsidy to represent Canada at that year’s world senior team championship.
