The twelfth Canada MONOPOLY Championship took place May 28-30, 2009 at the Montreal Science Centre in Montreal. Will Lusby defeated the field of 48 and represented Canada at the 2009 World Championship in Las Vegas.

To qualify, interested players took an online Monopoly quiz. The first 48 to complete the 20-question quiz on MONOPOLY strategy, rules, and general probabilities, and earn a score of 80% or higher correct were invited to participate, with 12 alternates selected in case of no-shows.

The prize for winning was $10,000 CAD and a trip to the 2009 World Championship in Las Vegas.

They used the speed die and $1500 starting cash; this was the first time Canada used the Speed Die in a championship. They played 3 preliminary rounds during Days 1 and 2, followed by a Final Round on Day 3. Phil Orbanes served as Chief Judge. Leon Vandendooren, the 2004 Canadian Champion, was given an automatic entry to the championship to defend his title. Paul the Intern from MTV Canada was given a seat as a press player.
