- Tier I: Schedule of Events has shifted to two sessions on both Friday and Saturday and only one session on Sunday.
- Senior Open: Swim BC sent out a survey/email earlier this week regarding the number of swimmers who would be participating and we received a very limited response. Because of this, we will be cancelling the Senior Open. Swim BC, with consultation with the BCSCA, will be reviewing the Senior Meet Program for next season.
- Tier II: Para Specific Events will be offered at this meet.
Both Tier I and Tier II Meet Packages will be posted on the SNC site shortly.

Swimming Canada would like to update our membership on the 2018-2021 Canadian Swimming Rulebook and the new Canadian Facility Rules & Guidelines.
All of the key stakeholders related to Swimming in Canada agreed that a comprehensive review and update of the Facility Rules was needed. A working group was created consisting of provincial sections, officials, the CSCTA and Swimming Canada staff. The task of the working group was to review the current facility rules, and in considering all of the perspectives of the key stakeholders, come up with recommended changes to the overall presentation and content of the facility rules.
All documents, including the Swimming Canada Rules 2018-2021, can be found on the Swimming Canada website.
