The Canada women's national soccer team (French: Équipe du Canada féminine de soccer) is overseen by the Canadian Soccer Association and competes in the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF).

The team reached international prominence at the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup, losing in the bronze medal match to the United States.[2] Canada qualified for its first Olympic women's soccer tournament in 2008, making it to the quarterfinals.[3] Canada are Olympic gold medallists, two-time CONCACAF Women's Championship winners, and two-time Olympic bronze medallists from London 2012 where they defeated France 1–0 in Coventry and from Rio de Janeiro 2016, after defeating hosts Brazil 2–1 in São Paulo.[4]

A certain segment of the Canadian women's soccer fans are closely linked to the U-20 team (U-19 prior to 2006), partly due to Canada hosting the inaugural FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship in 2002, a tournament in which the team won silver in front of 47,784 fans at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta.[5] Canada also hosted the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, where they were eliminated in the quarterfinals by England. Canada set the tournament and team record for attendance in the process, with 1,353,506 and 54,027 respectively.[6]
