Canadian Region Champions in the 1960s


Though the Canadian Region was formed in 1958, it did not encompass leagues from Western Canada until 1965. Prior to that point, the champions of Ontario and Eastern Canada (Quebec and the Maritime Provinces) squared off for the Canadian Region title and the accompanying World Series berth. Western Canada leagues competed as part of the U.S.'s West and North Regions.

The Stoney Creek Optimist LL became the first nationwide Canadian champion when they defeated Trail (BC) to win the 1965 Canadian Region title. The win gave Stoney Creek its second World Series berth, and Stoney Creek's second place finish in the World Series that year remains the best-ever showing by a Canadian league.

Valleyfield also claimed multiple region titles in the 1960s, as their three titles gave the perennial Quebec powerhouse five titles since the region was formed in 1958.
