Next are Royal Montreal Golf Club with seven (1897, 1900, 1902, 1904, 1908, 1912, and 1931) and Hamilton Golf and Country Club with six (1922, 1927, 1935, 1948, 1977, and 1994).

The 1898 Amateur Hockey Association of Canada season was the twelfth and final season of the league.

The Canadian Amateur was dominated in the 1920s and 1930s by Ross Somerville, who won six titles, finished runner-up four times, and had several more near-misses. Nick Weslock waited until age 40 to win the first of his four titles in 1957.

Other leading Americans who competed but fell short include William C. The Canadian title has also been won by South African Reg Taylor (1962), New Zealanders Stuart Jones (1967) and Gareth Paddison (2001), Mexican Rafael Alarcon (1979), and Australian Gary Simpson (1993). Chapman and Ward also won The Amateur Championship of Great Britain, a title which no Canadian has yet taken.

To date, ten players who won the Canadian Amateur have also won events on the PGA Tour.

The Willingdon Cup features teams of four top players from each province, and is held on the first two days of the Canadian Amateur, which are also the qualifying days for the balance of the tournament.

The Willingdon Cup was also not played from 1940-45.

In conjunction with the meeting, the first men's amateur championship was staged, at match play, with the Governor General, Lord Aberdeen, donating a trophy, the Aberdeen Cup, to the champion.

Thomas Harley of Kingston, Ontario won the first championship.

Benny Phillips of New York would score the only goal and assists were rewarded to De Casanova and Russell.

The first game was dubbed by the American media as establishing the amateur international championship, between the top American team, The New York Athletic Club and the top Canadian team the Montreal Victorias. The game was noted as the Victorias were able to 'disarm' their oppoenents illustrating stealing the puck from the opposeing players through stickhandling.

Brent Franklin won three in a row from 1985–1987, a feat not seen since Lyon did it some eighty years earlier.
