The 72-hole, full-field event was first played in June 2012 at the Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.[1] The title sponsor is Manulife Financial, a global insurance company and financial services provider with headquarters in Toronto.

At the inaugural event in 2012, Brittany Lang won her first LPGA title in a four-way sudden-death playoff. It was the first-ever win on the tour by an alumna of Duke.[2][3] The runners-up were Hee Kyung Seo, Inbee Park, and Chella Choi.[4] After missing a birdie putt at the par-5 18th to win in regulation, Lang birdied the same hole three straight times in the playoff.[5]

In 2015, the tournament moved to Whistle Bear Golf Club in Cambridge, Ontario.
