The following is the list of provincial, national and international events.

The British Columbia Weightlifting Association has developed a static competition calendar for it's core competitions. This helps the athletes prepare on time and with lots of notice, as an athlete's training schedule will revolve around the competition calendar. Other competitions may be a BCWA sanctioned event, but are not recognized as a core competition until approved by the Executive. Click here to view our Events Calendar.
