The 2020 CP Women's Open has been cancelled.
The Canadian women's professional golf championship was scheduled for the first week of September at Vancouver's Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club.
Organizers had hoped that the tournament would be able to go ahead as planned, but travel and border restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible.
Shaughnessy and the city of Vancouver will instead host the event in 2021.
Golf Canada had already cancelled all of its national championships.
The RBC Canadian Open, Canada's men's professional championship, was cancelled in mid-April.
