The squad have been working hard in preparation for the game by playing two hard fought games against Northampton Saints and Saracens in recent weeks.
Those results did not go the way of the Junior Cherry and Whites and it's hoped the young squad can record a win against international opposition on the Kingsholm pitch where they ultimately aspire to play week in week out.
Canada are in the UK to take part in the RFU's Wellington College festival where they will meet a couple of the Gloucester players in Sam Underhill and Will Goodrick-Clark playing for the England U16 side.
With Carl Hogg's former Leeds team mate Mike Shelley now Head Coach for the Canada U17s, it seemed logical to touch base with Hoggy in the hope of playing a warm up fixture.
Billy Clark, Junior Academy Manager, was quick to take the Canadians up on this offer.
'The Gloucester Rugby Academy programme is all about developing talented players to push on to represent the club.
"We focus heavily on upskilling all of the players in the programme to ensure they have the skills set needed to be able to play at the highest level. However competitive games are a very important part of the learning process.
"We need to see how the guys handle pressure, how they manage a game, who the leaders are when the going gets tough. Also how much of what they can do on the training field can they transfer to the pitch and execute when it counts?
"So the opportunity to play international opposition gives us a great chance to see our aspiring players in a really challenging environment.
"We've played two of the best teams the Premiership Academies have to offer in Northampton Saints and Saracens so we know the standards we need to surpass in our aim of becoming the leading academy in the country.
"Canada will be another great test for the players on the field but also for raising our reputation as a leading Academy."
With the number of Gloucester Rugby Academy players being recognised at international level increasing this year with three at England U16, three at England U18, one at Wales U18, two at England U19 and four at England U20, the game against Canada offers those players who have not yet gained international recognition the opportunity to show the coaches just how good they are.
Only the South Stand will be open and gates open one hour before kick off.
Entry is free for Gloucester Rugby season ticket holders, £5 for adults and £1 for concessions and U16s.
