Welcome to the CN Canadian Women’s Tour!
Each year the CN Canadian Women's Tour strives to provide competitors with great golf courses in remarkable host cities.
The CN Canadian Women’s Tour offers a great forum in which to hone your competitive edge while competing for exemptions into the CN Canadian Women’s Open. You could be only a few rounds of golf away from competing on the LPGA Tour!
Priority Status and Exemption List
The CN Canadian Women's Tour features priority status and exemptions, enabling competitors direct entry into tournament fields.
Applicants on the priority status and exemption list will be accepted automatically into the field (see 'note' for professional and amateur priority status). Additional applicants will be accepted on a 'first received, first accepted' basis and if the number of applicants exceeds 90 individuals and/or 18 amateurs respectively an alternate list will be established accordingly. If the field reaches 90 competitors, the amateur component of the field will not exceed 18 competitors. If, however, the final field size is less than 90 competitors, the amateur component of the field may exceed 18 competitors.

Note: All players with priority status and exemptions must register before the tournament deadline and are required to pay registration fees.
Champion and Order of Merit Exemptions
There are five (5) exemptions available into the CN Canadian Women’s Open. The champion of each of the three tour events earns an exemption. Following the conclusion of play of the CN Canadian Women’s Tour event of the year, two (2) additional exemptions will be awarded to the top competitors, not otherwise exempt, on the season-ending CN Canadian Women’s Tour Order of Merit.
