The Canadian Track and Field Championships have their roots in Montreal. During the 1870s the Montreal Lacrosse Club held annual and semi-annual track and field competitions. In some years these served as the Canadian Track and Field Championships, with the first national championships taking place at Montreal on September 27, 1884. The Championships took place every year thereafter except during World War I (1915-1918) and World War II (1940-1945). The women's competition was added in 1925.
