I wrote a bit about Jackie Tessier (Queen's striker named to the team) a couple of weeks back when she was preparing for the final round of tryouts:

Unless something has changed this is a Pay to Play program, that is players pay the airfaire and costs of being involved, so only those with resources to attend can try out, no funding by CIS is provided to the players.

Hence why we finish in the fifth place spot versus top spot we are not choosing team based on playing merit.

Some of the costs are covered, but not all. Jackie stated that she had to cover about $3000 all told.

The team is being chosen on playing merit, but some of the players who might have sufficient merit to play are unable to attend for varying reasons (whether monetary or school-based).

While I agree that the players do fund a big portion of the program. You will find that a majority of the players on the team are not only the best players in their school programs but some of the best players in the CIS

So the two coaches are :

Head coach Liz Jepsen Alberta St. Albert, Alta.

Assistant coach Steve Johnson Ottawa Ottawa, Ont.

Surprise surprise five players from Univ of Alberta, and five from Eastern Ontario Universitys ( Carelton 2, Ottawa U 2 and Queens 1 )

One player out of Quebec....none from down east.. not a Caper on the team ?

The selection process is biased by the coaches location and university they come from, and by the need for players to anti-up money.

Its and embarassment to University sport how this competition is managed by the CIS.

You would think its more fair to select the players from the CIS all-star teams... as slected.

I like the idea of using the All-Canadian selections, but that excludes any Canadian players south of the border. The FISU games teams are organized by the CIS as the governing body of university sport in Canada, but they are open to student-athletes in the NCAA and NAIA as well.
