The draw for the two-legged semifinals was made Wednesday night at halftime of the second leg of the Pacific-Ottawa quarterfinal in Langford, B.C.

The draw also determined that the winner of the Vancouver-Pacific/Ottawa semifinal will host the stand-alone championship game.

Toronto defeated Forge by a penalty shootout in the pandemic-delayed 2022 championship game, which was actually played in June 2022.

The winner of the 14-team Canadian Championship hoists the Voyageurs Cup, collects $50,000 from Canada Soccer in prize money and qualifies for the CONCACAF Champions Cup, the confederation’s elite men’s club competition.
