The Pan-Pacific Swimming Championships were launched in 1985. The competition was initially staged every two years. However, it was decided that the event would be held every four years from 2002.


Participating nations include Canada, the United States, Australia and Japan, in addition to several other non-European countries, such as China, New Zealand and Brazil.


This year's championships will be held at the Saanich Commonwealth Palace Pool in Victoria, Canada. The long-course, 50-metre pool was built for the 1994 Commonwealth Games.
