Toronto Canoe Club Yearbook for 1909 lists the points
table for the 1908 Championships in Ottawa (which
Toronto won for the first time). However, they only
award 2 points for a first and 1 point for a second.
Those points totals are not listed here.
The Montreal Gazette seems to list inconsistent
points totals that do not match the 3-2-1 system
in place at the time. The above tabulation is based
on actual results.
The points used in "Canada's Sprint Canoe Clubs,"
(2006) are based on Senior/Junior events only from
1904 to 1915.

There were only two official member clubs in the Western
Division in 1908: Toronto CC and Island AAA. Other
unaffiliated clubs competed alongside with them at
a Divisional "qualifying" meet simply to
"make a regatta of it." Only Parkdale joined
the Division as a result, despite threats from the
CAAU about the professionalisation of paddlers.
