What is a PROVINCIAL QUALIFIER?
Provincial Qualifiers are the competitions held in each province to select the delegates who compete in the Canada’s National Pageant. There may be more then one in each province. For example, if there are 40 girls in the Miss Alberta World pageant – 15 girls will be selected to go to nationals. There is an entry fee to compete at the Provincial Pageant which varies on province please inquire for the cost of your province.
Do you award titles at the provincial qualifier?
City & Regional Titles are optional, delegates that qualify at a provincial qualifier have the option of receiving a title to rein for a year or to compete at the National Canada pageant without one. They are awarded according to ranking in the scores and where each finalist resides. Delegates can opt out of titles, if they choose to receive a title they are expected to promote it and attend events in their community. Titles have no influence on winning any of the five “MISS” Canada Titles we hold Exclusive Licences for. Titles are given for the sole benefit of the delegate to have the experience and opportunities you receive as titleholder.
I do not have any experience. What are my responsibilities?
You do not need experience – that is where the Pageant Group Canada workshops on the first day come in. Competing in the provincial has benefits, if you qualify for Nationals its entirely up to you whether you have a title or not; furthermore you make your appearance schedule. There are tons of opportunities that come with a title and if you want to take advantage of it you can; but nothing is mandatory, school & careers are always a priority and we understand that exceptional young women have very busy schedules so we make it easy for you.

I am 5’3″, and have been told I cannot model, so does that mean I cannot win the title?
Height has no bearing on who will win the crown. To us, being 5’1″ is just as beautiful as being 5’11”. This competition it about you shining from the inside out!
Former queens heights have been 5’2 and 6’0 !
So what is the difference between Regionals and Nationals?
Regionals are held in each province to select the national finalists. At the regionals there are several winners, they are called National Finalists. All National Finalists receive a crown for their achievements and eligible a title; as mentioned before they are optional. The Regionals are a two day pageant held over the course of a weekend. The National pageant is one week long in Toronto and the contestants are all the regional winners from across Canada. A Nationals pageant is where the title of Miss Grand Canada, Miss Supranational Canada Miss Earth Canada, Miss Intercontinental Canada and Miss World® Canada can be awarded
Do I need to be bilingual?
While being bilingual is an asset, it is not a requirement. Translators will be provided at the national level for any French speaking delegates.
What if I got into some trouble with the law?
Contestant must be of good moral character, have no explicit photos of any kind in any medium nor a criminal record.
Can I compete if I have a child or I am Married?
Currently our franchises do not accept contestants that are married, divorced, or given birth to a child due to the rigorous travel schedule the International Queens keep. If and when they change this rule we will be happy to accept mothers. Anyone married should apply to Mrs. pageants.
What if I am represented by a modeling agency?
That is totally fine, you may have an agent for film, television and modeling but you can not be bound by any agreement preventing you from signing and performing the Contestant Contract. We have never had an issue with any agency since we began in 2008.
