June 26, 2024 – Canada West rugby is back with a bang this fall, as the conference's 14 game slate is scheduled to begin in late August.

A pair of Alberta rivals will kick things off as the Calgary Dinos visit the Alberta Pandas on Aug. 30. The schedule hits high gear the following week with Victoria hosting UBC on Sept. 7 in a highly anticipated rematch of last year's Canada West final. Lethbridge also opens their season that day, hosting the Pandas at Community Sports Stadium.

UBC enters the season looking for a Canada West five-peat, a feat not seen since Lethbridge captured six straight conference crowns from 2006-11. The T-Birds went a perfect 5-0 during last year's regular season, eventually defeating the Vikes 10-0 in a hard fought CW gold medal game.

Extending the dynasty will be far from easy, with three hungry Alberta rivals and a Victoria squad coming off a magical run at last year's U SPORTS championships, where they earned a national silver medal. The Vikes made their first U SPORTS championship final appearance in program history after stunning top seeded Ottawa in the quarterfinals before blanking Guelph in the semis, eventually falling to host Université Laval in the final.

No Canada West team has won a national title since Alberta in 2013, something all five CW sides are determined to change this season.

Regular season action continues through Oct. 12, with Lethbridge hosting Calgary in the regular season finale. The Dinos will then host the 2024 Canada West Championships in Calgary, with semifinal action on Oct. 17 and the bronze/gold medal games set for Oct. 20. ​

The 2024 U SPORTS national championships are headed to the east coast, to be hosted by UPEI in Charlottetown, PEI from Oct. 30 to Nov. 3.
