‘Canada’s NUMBER ONE source for Canadian Chess news, games and other information! Started several months ago as an off-shoot of the popular BCN, Yip has revolutionized the way the average Canadian amateur finds out what is happening in Canada! 

Updated daily!

As a short aside, since Yip has started to cover Canadian Chess tournaments and players, the CFC has been scrambling to try to catch up! 

 The CFC website(Newsfeed) has just created a dedicated newsfeed, but so far the editor behind this initiative has stumbled, messed-up and, at times, failed miserably to deliver the right content for the CFC’s members! (more).’
