Qualification for these championships was a two-part qualification process, where the ranking was based on results from two domestic events: Elite Canada, and Canadian Championships. Athletes who are over the age of 18 were selected to be named to the team to compete in the 18-21 age category.  The decision was made to send team members in this category only for this year due to the ongoing challenges with the world pandemic.
