The Canadian national bandy team is the bandy team representing Canada. The team is overseen by the Manitoba and Canadian Bandy Federations, members of the Federation of International Bandy. The team has competed in the annual Bandy World Championship several times starting in 1991.
At the 2010 Bandy World Championship Canada won Group B for the first time. Canada, however, lost the Group A qualification match against the United States by a score of 6–9, and thus would again play in Group B at the 2011 Bandy World Championship in Kazan, Russia. For this Championship Canada's team included 4 players playing professionally in club teams in Sweden. Canada did not participate in the 2015 Bandy World Championship. There were reports about them returning to the 2016 WCS, however, they did not. However, the team is set to return to the 2017 tournament. They have continued to play the annual Can-Am Bandy Cup.
