Canada West is one of four such bodies that are members of the country's governing body for university athletics, U Sports. The other three regional associations coordinating university-level sports in Canada are Ontario University Athletics (OUA), Atlantic University Sport (AUS), and the Quebec Student Sport Federation.

U Sports is the national sport governing body of university sport in Canada, comprising the majority of degree-granting universities in the country.
