Overview

Team profile

Canada

Canada stunned the world in 2017, making the Final Six of the FIVB World League and going on to eliminate Russia in pool play and (after losing to eventual champions France in the semifinals) knock out archrivals USA 3-1 for bronze. It was Team Canada's best achivement to date in world volleyball. Canada consistently participated in the World League after their debut in 1999, but their best finish until last year had been 5th.
Last year, in the inaugural FIVB Volleyball Nations League, Canada finished 7th on an 8-7 record - just short of a spot in the Final Six.
Canada's other achievements include a 4th place at the Los Angeles 1984 Olympic Games and two bronze medals at the Pan American Games in 1979 and 1999. They have participated in four Olympic Games, including most recently a 5th-place finish at Rio 2016, after returning to the Games following a quarter-century absence.
Canada hosted the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto where they beat Puerto Rico for the bronze medal. Canada competed at the FIVB Volleyball Men's World Cup in 2015 for the first time in 12 years, finishing seventh. They last appeared in 2003, also finishing seventh. They finished joint-seventh at the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship.

Glen Hoag, who coached Canada's men's National Team to a fifth-place finish at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, has returned to his home country to lead the team again after the deperture of Stephane Antiga. The 60-year-old began his coaching career in 1993 with the University of Sherbrooke, and then, while still at Sherbrooke, he started coaching at Paris Volley in France. His highlight during his tenure in Paris was in 2001 when the team won the French Cup, the French Championship and the European Champions Cup. He has also served as assistant coach for the French National Team from 2001 to 2004, and at club level coached ACH Sport in Slovenia and since 2010 Arkas Spor Izmir in the Turkish League. As a player he competed for Canada in the Los Angeles 1984 Olympic Games. His son, Nick and Christopher also play volleyball for Canada.
