Rodney Cuillèrier added his name to an esteemed roll of honour after claiming the 2016 Canadian National Snooker Championship at La Bande Au Coin in Saint-Lambert, Quebec.

Cuillèrier began the event by winning all three of his group games and qualifying the knockout phase. There he eliminated Andre Roy 5-1, Mehdi Dorhmi 5-1 and Gilles Boisemenu 6-2 to reach the final for the first time.

His opponent was three-time winner Floyd Ziegler, who would contest the title match for the seventh time in the past 10 years. On his way, he had dethroned defending champion John White 5-1 in the quarter-finals, gaining a measure of revenge for his loss to him in the final 12 months before.

However, it was Cuillèrier celebrating following a 7-4 triumph.

Another new winner was also crowned in the Canadian National Seniors Snooker Championship as Fern Loyer defeated reigning champion Kristal MacLeod 4-1 in the final.

Event date: start of May 2016.
