The Canadian Futures Showcase is a national amateur baseball showcase held each September and hosted by the Blue Jays Baseball Academy. The goal is to provide a showcase opportunity for the best amateur baseball players born in Canada, with draft and college eligibility. It acts to centralize the best Canadian baseball players, with the intention of exposing them to as many MLB scouts and college recruiters as possible.

Simply put, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy's intention is to provide a platform that both highlights and markets the high level of amateur baseball talent in this country. Since 2013, 110 former showcase players have been drafted by Major League Baseball organizations with over 500 receiving college scholarships to continue their academic and athletic careers.

The Canadian Futures Showcase will return to Rogers Centre in 2023 after taking place at Ottawa Stadium in 2022, due to contractual obligations and unforeseen scheduling challenges. The showcase will return to Rogers Centre from September 19 – September 23.

Showcase tryouts are held across Canada from May 16 to July 20. These tryouts help determine the players selected to participate at the showcase. While it is not mandatory that players attend a tryout in order to be selected to a roster, it is the best way to ensure players are fairly and accurately evaluated.
