I will try my best to calculate the final rating (average CFC and FIDE +/- bonus for the Canadian Women) as soon as possible after May 1. CFC should contact qualified players as soon as possible after that. It could be useful to get e-mails for top-10 or even top-15 female players well in advance. (Actually, it's good for the National Team also, we all remember LeSiege in 2018).
Excellent points Victor and also by Hal. Yes, contacting the players in advance, then they should have enough time. I think it would be very unlikely someone will have a Visa denied. I will support this motion.
