The Canadian Tour is not one of six full members of the International Federation of PGA Tours, but it has associated member status, and it is one of the three additional tours on which Official World Golf Rankings points are available. This indicates that it is regarded by the golf authorities are being between the 7th strongest and 9th strongest men's professional tour in the World.
Besides its Canadian members, the tour has many members from the United States, and a smaller number from other countries. The leading Canadian golfers play primarily on the U.S.-based PGA Tour rather than on their domestic tour.
The Canadian Open, which is the richest golf event in Canada, is a PGA Tour event. The Canadian Professional Golf Tour receives some exemptions for the event, but the prize money does not count towards the Canadian Tour money list. The early season events on the Canadian Professional Golf Tour take place in the United States and Mexico, partly due to the cold Canadian winters. The tour also receives exemptions for a few Challenge Tour events. In 2007 the tour held fifteen standard events (including the Canadian Open), which is an increase of three over 2006, two qualifying schools and a USA v. Canada team match.
