The Keirin saw the continued domination of two riders in the speed events.  Tegan Cochrane (Cycling BC) won her third title in the women's race, beating Lauriane Genest (Équipe du Québec) and Jenna Nestman (Alete).  Rio Olympian Hugo Barrette (Équipe du Québec) did the same in the men's race, defeating team mates Joel Archambault and Patrice St Louis Pivin.  The men's race was reduced to these three riders after a crash took down the rest of the field.

The Championships concluded with the Madison, which is gaining renewed interest after it was recently returned to the Olympic program for 2020 in Tokyo.  Team Race Clean took both the women's and men's titles, with Allison Beveridge and Jasmin Duehring combining to dominate the women's race.  It was Beveridge's third track title, to go along with the national road title she won in June.  Sho-Air Twenty20 (Annie Foreman-Mackey/Laura Brown) took the silver medal and The Cyclery-4iiii (Kinley Gibson/Laurie Jussaume) the bronze.
