Canada defeated Guyana 5-0 in its opener and completes the group stage on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 8:30 p.m. ET against Guatemala.

Each of Canada's group-stage matches at the Feb. 11-21 tournament will be streamed live on CBCSports.ca and the CBC Sports App for iOS and Android.

Canada can progress to the knockout round by placing first or second in Group B and would then compete on Feb. 19 in the semifinals. A victory there would ensure Canada a spot in Rio later this summer, and also a berth in the final in Houston on Feb. 21.

Canada's knockout-round matches can be seen on Sportsnet ONE.

Canada has twice qualified for the Olympics through the CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Championship, each timing defeating Mexico in the semifinals to earn an Olympic berth before being defeated by the United States in the final match. Canada went on to place eighth at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and won bronze at the London 2012 Games.
