Canada's team size stands at 367 athletes atm.

 

These can add to the team:

 

-Men's hammer throw (Athletics) - Adam Keenan is the first reserve

-Men's basketball (12 athletes) - Waiting for qualification tournament to end on Sunday

-Laurence Vincent Lapointe is still waiting to hear if she can compete in canoeing

-An appeal on the exclusion of the equestrian jumping team is still outstanding ?

-There is an appeal currently regarding Jeremy Chartier's potential participation in Tokyo. We will know the verdict on Friday.

-Still waiting word on Yvette Yong receiving the unused quota from the Oceania Qualification tournament. 

-Any B standard swimmer being invited to the games (unlikely, but still a possibility exists). 

 

so if everything is positive then we are looking at 385+ athletes

 

Also the size of the soccer team is likely to expand by four (all alternates will be included) per the AP.

Canada's team size stands at 371 athletes atm.

 

Rugby +2

Water polo +1

Field hockey +2

Football +4

 

These sports alternates will count now (waiting for final confirmation). So that is 380 athletes right there.

 

These can add to the team:

 

-Men's hammer throw (Athletics) - Adam Keenan is the first reserve

-Men's basketball (12 athletes) - Waiting for qualification tournament to end on Sunday

-Laurence Vincent Lapointe is still waiting to hear if she can compete in canoeing

-An appeal on the exclusion of the equestrian jumping team is still outstanding ?

-There is an appeal currently regarding Jeremy Chartier's potential participation in Tokyo. We will know the verdict on Friday.

-Any B standard swimmer being invited to the games (unlikely, but still a possibility exists). 

 

so if everything is positive then we are looking at 397+ athletes

I kind of think the “alternates count” in team sports should be a permanent change tbh. They can still travel at the cost of the NCO / not be hosted in the village, but not considering them Olympians and not allowing them to compete just to artificially lowering the number of athletes is just petty.

There are P athletes (alternates) in many other sports though.

I feel like the current way P athletes work in individual sports make a lot more sense than in team sports. They are on site anyway, there is no reason to not let them substitute in and out.
