Please note, those contestants who fail to qualify for their Provincial Finals at in-person qualifiers can still submit videos and participate in the online qualifiers, so it's to your advantage to prepare for both.
For those unable to attend live qualifying events, video qualification is available online for both solos & duets.
PREQUALIFYING (optional) February 1 → March 15, 2022
Requirement: 2 videos, recorded and submitted within the prequalification period
This is a non-elimination round – essentially a practice round. Contestants will have the opportunity to receive feedback and coaching from our judges, and the most outstanding performances will be featured on KWC Canada’s website.
QUALIFYING (elimination round) March 16 → May 15, 2022
Requirement: 2 videos, recorded and submitted within the qualifying period
The top 10 will be invited to attend the Provincial Championships in Hamilton, assuming their entries meet a minimum standard.
Video submissions for the Provincial Finals will be due one week prior to the start of the event – competitors who qualified via video have the option to attend in person if they so choose. The Ontario Provincial Finals are to be held May 21/22 in Hamilton.
Those who qualify for the National Finals will be expected to attend in-person. There is no video component at the national level, so attendance is mandatory.
