Canadian Amateur Championship – Wikipedia

The Canadian Amateur Championship was first established back in 1969. Alain Robidoux is the record championship holder with seven titles, one ahead of Kirk Stevens.

Many former champions have gone on to play on the world tour such as Alain Robidoux, Kirk Stevens, Bob Chaperon, Jim Wych, Bill Werbeniuk and most notably Cliff Thorburn who went on to become the first player in the modern era from outside the United Kingdom to win the World Snooker Championship in 1980.
