All fifty competitors play eighteen rounds ending on Sunday afternoon to determine two finalists. Those two finalists then play a best-of-five series beginning at 9:00 A.M. Monday morning (with a lunch break at noon if the series has not been decided) to crown the new Canadian Champion.

The winner wins $7,000 and the right to represent Canada at the 2009 World Championship, the runner-up wins $2,500.

The finals will be hosted by an expert Canadian player (in 2005 it was top-rated female player Robin Pollock Daniel), who will follow along with a roomful of expert players as the game is posted play-by-play on a giant SCRABBLE board. This event is open to the public, and admission is free.
