It appears Canada's 2014 Olympic figure skating team will be determined in Ottawa.

Skate Canada will make an event announcement Tuesday at the Rink of Dreams in Ottawa where it's expected Scotiabank Place will be awarded the 2014 Canadian figure skating championships.

The event, in January, 2014, also will serve as the Olympic trials for Canada, similar to the last time the Canadian championships were in Ottawa in 2006.

With Skate Canada International for next season already awarded to Saint John, N.B., and the ISU Grand Prix final in Japan, the Canadian championships is the lone remaining big event up for grabs in 2013-14.
