The Irish Dance Teachers Association of Canada - Eastern Region, is the host of the North American Irish Dance Championships every eight years.  This event, more commonly known as "Nationals" is held at the start of July each year in a different host city throughout North America, and it runs over five days (or six, depending on the decisions of the hosting committee). 

This event qualifies North American-residents to compete at the following year's World Championships, and attracts a top standard of dancing from around the world for solo and team competitions.

The 2022 North American Irish Dance Championships is scheduled to occur at the Palais des Congrès, 1001 Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle, Montreal, Quebec, on July 1-2-3-4-5, which is the same location as the 2014 NAIDC and the same building as the 2015 World Championships (but in a different area).  We cannot wait to welcome you back to our wonderful region.

This will be the seventh time that Eastern Canada will play host for the Championships.  Previous events were held as follows: 1984 Toronto, 1989 Toronto, 1995 Toronto, 2001 Toronto, 2007 Ottawa, 2014 Montreal.
