In the winter of 2015/2016, Swimming Canada underwent the first phase of a national and provincial competitions review with technical staff, Provincial Sport Organizations (PSOs), and the Canadian Swimming Teachers Association (CSCTA) to help identify and address a variety of gaps in Canadian swimming.

Based on those discussions, Swim Ontario staff and the Sport Development Committee (SDC) reviewed current programming and approved the following Provincial Competition Program for 2016/2017:
