Upcoming races for the rest of the summer include the Cactus 5 and 10k this weekend in Dundas, triathlon world championships in Edmonton, and the Ironman 70.3 world championships in September. Marauders.ca has an article on Taylor Forbes and the Edmonton race which you can check out here. Also, missing from the results a few weeks ago was Paul Kolb's Ironman.
