Late this morning (Thursday November 19, 2020) the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit advised that we could not hold the event in the City of Barrie. We have tried our best many times to secure a location for the Toronto Pro Qualifier and the CPA President's Cup (Toronto, Vaughan, Hamilton, Kitchener, Barrie).
Since we received the news this morning we have been trying to find another location. Unfortunately we were unable to and at this point we must regretfully cancel the event.
We apologize for the inconvenience (to put it mildly) that this has caused. We, like you, are devastated to deliver this news.
We are grateful to our loyal competitors who have worked so hard under pandemic conditions to participate. Our heartfelt apologies to all of you.
We will refund your registration fees.
The CPA President's Cup (formerly known as the OPA Gala Championships) has always been one of the largest regional events of the year, and this year, there is another great reason to step on stage at this event...
Special considerations have been made for 2020 such that ALL competitors who compete at ANY Canadian Physique Alliance regional events will be qualified to compete at IFBB Pro-Qualifying events, and the Toronto Pro Qualifier takes place at the very same venue on Saturday November 21 - the day after the CPA President's Cup!
This means that Athletes competing at the CPA President's Cup on Friday November 20 may compete at the Toronto Pro Qualifier the very next day, potentially earning their IFBB Pro Card!
