Canadian Xiangqi Federation
About the Canadian Xiangqi Federation
The World Xiangqi Federation was established in 1993. At that time, six cities in Canada participated in the name of three associate members: Canada West (Vancouver), Canada Central (Edmonton, Calgary), and Canada East (Toronto, Montreal).
Until 2008, the Canadian Xiangqi Federation (CXF) was finally established. At that time, the member cities were Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal. In 2009, the CXF officially joined the World Xiangqi Federation as a member of the only Xiangqi organization approved by Canada. Later, the Richmond Chinese Chess Club, the Quebec Xiangqi Association, and the Markham Xiangqi Association joined the CXF as members.
In 2018 and 2019, the CXF hosted the World Xiangqi Team Open and World Xiangqi Championship in Toronto and Vancouver, respectively, being the first country twice in a row to bring the World Xiangqi Team Open and World Xiangqi Championship out of Asia to the Americas!
