On the line for Canada will be:
- Canadian road and time trial champion Leah Kirchmann
- Olympic team pursuit bronze medalist Jasmin Glaesser
- Track Worlds medalists Laura Brown and Stephanie Roorda

The men's race at noon (GMT) will be 12 laps for 168 km.

Canada's entry is:
- Canadian champion and Giro d'Italia pink jersey wearer Svein Tuft
- Tour of California stage winner Will Routley
- 2013 Canadian champion Zach Bell
- Canadian critérium champion Rémi Pelletier-Roy
- Nic Hamilton
