Canada West teams will go on to compete at the Rugby Canada University 7s National Championship in late March in Kingston, Ont.

This season marks the final of a three-year pilot partnership between B2ten, Rugby Canada, and Canada West to bring university rugby 7s competition to Western Canada.

B2ten and Rugby Canada's partnership with Canada West is part of their ongoing commitment to producing the next generation of Olympians by growing the game at Western Canadian universities that share their collective goal of developing high performance rugby programs here in Canada.
