Thanks! Post the selection procedures as well for all the sports, so we would like to know. I assure that Canadian athletes will be selected in the track and field and swimming through the Olympic trials. I do not know for the rest.

 Here is my simulated team size.

 

Archery: 3 (all men. The men finished with silver at the test event, and looks like they have improved quite a bit, atp its a toss up if they all qualify).

Athletics: 61 (more can qualify). 

Badminton: 4 (men's and women's singles + one doubles event, from a continental reallocation).

Basketball: 24 (men's and women's teams. Hopefully the men can qualify). 

Beach volleyball: 8 (2 men's and women's pairs)

Boxing: 3 (don't think any will qualify in the world tournaments). 

Canoeing: 8; 2 in slalom and 6 in flatwater (4 in men's kayak, 1 in canoeing and 1 in women's kayak; Oldershaw or the C2 cannot qualify do to quota rules). 

Cycling: 18; 6 in road cycling, 1 in bmx, 4 in mountain biking and 7 or 8 in track (depends on if Beveridge competes in the team pursuit)

Diving: 8 (4 men and 4 women)

Equestrian: 10 (qualification is complete).

Fencing: 6 (one in each individual event)

Field hockey: 16 (men's team)

Football: 18 (women's team)

Golf: 4 (2 in each gender currently in qualification position, this is the maximum team size) 

Gymnastics: 8; 6 in artistic (women's team and one man), 2 in trampoline (one in each event)

Judo: 7 (currently 7 in qualification position; unlikely any other athletes move up into a qualification spot)/ 

Modern pentathlon: 2 (both women, one is qualified already, the other will qualify through the rankings as she is 5th)

Rowing: 30 (currently 22 qualified in 6 events.The men's and women's quad sculls should qualify at the worlds, as only one both per gender can qualify at that event).  

Rugby sevens: 24 (men's and women's tournament, hopefully the men qualify)

Sailing: 13 (13 qualified in 9 events)

Shooting: 2 (both women)

Swimming: 24 (same as the worlds)

Synchro: 2 (duet)

Table tennis: 2 (one man and one woman, the men's team is unlikely to qualify)

Taekwondo: 1 (qualification is over)

Tennis: 5 (Raonic, Nestor, Pospisil, Shamsadin and Bouchard)

Triathlon: 5 (5 currently in qualification position; 2 men and 3 women)

Volleyball: 12 (men's team)

Water polo: 12 (men's team, this might be a stretch but the draw is favourable for Canada at the final tournament). 

Weightlifting: 2 (one man and one woman)

Wrestling: 9 (7 are already qualified, I expect Garcia and Gill to qualify at the worlds, though it will be tough)

 

Total: 351

Not great results so far at the Swimming Olympics trials. Nobody qualified in the men's 400m IM or the men's 100m breaststroke (winner was 0.02s off). Brittany MacLean did win the 400m with a new Canadian standard and, three races is, in the only Canadian to qualify. Taylor Ruck, 15, was less than a second off the qualification time.

 

Edit 1: In an upset Penelope Oleksiak wins the women's 100m butterfly with a new Canadian record. Noemie Thomas beats out Katerine Savard, beating the old Canadian record, to also qualify for the Olympics.

Oleksiak would have won silver and Thomas Bronze with those times at the worlds last year! And Oleksiak is only 15! unreal.
