The Town of Midland is located in the heart of one of our nation’s most beautiful recreational area and offers a range of activities to make it a four-season destination. It’s only a 30-minute drive Northwest of Barrie. During your free time at our national competition, Midland has a dynamic recreational waterfront, which includes the picturesque harbour, and waterfront trail for walking, biking and rollerblading. You will also have the opportunity to view the beautiful horticultural displays throughout Midland and enjoy a relaxing afternoon at Little Lake Park. If you are more of a shopper, take a stroll through the hub of the downtown area and enjoy an array of boutiques, restaurants and services, as well as the beautiful murals scattered throughout the downtown core.


The Canadian Masters Weightlifting Federation recognizes that the location of our National Championships is on land which is the traditional and Treaty territory of the Anishinabek people, now known as the Chippewa Tri-Council comprised of Beausoleil First Nation, Rama First Nation, and the Georgina Island First Nation.
