Canada have participated at the cricket world cup five times since their first in 1979.
- Canada's first World Cup match was on Jun 9, 1979 v Pakistan at Headingley, Leeds
- Canada's best performance has been reaching the semi-finals in 1995, after their only ever World Cup victory on Feb 11, 2003 against Bangladesh at Kingsmead, Durban. In that match Canada beat Bangladesh by 60 runs.
- The major highlight for Canada at the World Cup is John Davison's hundred from just 67 balls against the West Indies in the 2003 World Cup.
- The 2007 squad includes a forklift driver, accountant, salesman, and teacher. There are just two professional players among the squad.
- Anderson Cummins is only the second player to represent two different teams in the World Cup (West Indies 1991-92 and Canada 2007) - the other was Kepler Wessels (Australia and South Africa).
- Canada have the oldest team in the 2007 competition with an average age of over 31. They have the only two 40-plus players of the tournament: George Codrington and Anderson Cummins. Cummins was the West Indies highest wicket-taker in the 1992 World Cup.
