Canada has participated in the international team handball competition since 1967, when the senior men's team attended the World Championship. The best ever result for a Canadian national team was in 1981, when the junior women placed eighth. Canada participated in the men's event in the 1976 Olympics in Montréal. Canadian teams played in the Pan-American Games in 1987, where the women placed second and the men fourth. In 1991, the men were again fourth, and in 1995, the women took the silver medal. The 1999 results saw the Canadian women again place second, while the men were fifth.
