Canada s men s hockey team wins gold medals almost every year.

Use an apostrophe in Canadas because it is possessive. Use an apostrophe in mens because it is the possessive of a plural noun that does not end in s. Do not use an apostrophe in wins because it is an action word, not a possessive noun. Do not use an apostrophe in medals because it is a plural word, not a possessive word.
