The 2006 Canadian Figure Skating Championships is an annual figure skating competition held by Skate Canada, the nation's figure skating governing body. Skaters compete at the senior and junior levels in the disciplines of men's singles, women's singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. The results of this competition were used to pick the Canadian teams to the 2006 Olympic Games, the 2006 World Figure Skating Championships, the 2006 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, and the 2006 World Junior Figure Skating Championships.
The competition took place from January 9 to 15, 2006 at the Ottawa Civic Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
Although the official ISU terminology for female skaters in the singles category is ladies, Skate Canada's official terminology is women and that is the term used in the official results. Due to the number of entries, the men's and women's competition had a qualifying round and the qualifying round was split in half to accommodate all the skaters.
