DOMINION DAY REGATTA

Below are listed, where known, the champion clubs of the Dominion Day Regatta (Toronto-centred) and the Dominion Day Regatta (Ottawa-centred). If and when other champions become known, they will be added to this list.

CANADA DAY REGATTA
These regattas are not affiliated with each other, but the Toronto Island and Brighton Beach regattas are both hosted by organisations with the title "Dominion Day Regatta Association." The Inter-City Regatta was originally an attempt to revive the Brighton Beach regatta.

The Dominion Day Regatta Association (Toronto) was founded in 1884 and the inaugural regatta took place in 1894 (based on "nth annual" statements in the papers), however the first canoeing competition appears to be in 1896.
