CWFHC Classification System

The CWFHC has created a classification system used to rank and categorize lifters. These classifications are typically used to set qualifying standards for provincial and regional competitions.

The totals are based on percentages of the CWFHC Senior Markers, which are updated after every Olympic year. They are used to establish eligibility for Sport Canada's Athlete Assistance Program (AAP).
