That is because this will be the 100th Canadian Figure Skating Championships and Canadian figure skaters are also battling for opportunities to compete for Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

There will be three spots available in the men's competition, pairs competition, and ice dance competition and two spots available in the women's competition. Canada will be a strong medal contender at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi in men's singles thanks to three-time World Champion Patrick Chan of Ottawa, Ontario, in ice dance thanks to Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of London, Ontario, the reigning Olympic champions, and in the new mixed team event which will make its Olympic debut.

Now it is time to take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of Canada's greatest Olympic figure skaters in the slideshow.
