"Our embassy in Beijing has been notified that court hearings for Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig are scheduled to take place on March 19 and March 22, respectively", Canada's foreign minister, Marc Garneau, said in the statement.
China says it has protected the legal rights of two Canadians due to be tried on national security charges starting tomorrow - allegations the Canadian government says Beijing fabricated following the arrest of Huawei telecom executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver.
Two Canadians detained by Beijing more than two years ago on suspicion of espionage will go before Chinese courts over the next two weeks, ramping up diplomatic tension between Ottawa and Beijing.
Freelance reporter Patrick Fok says the timing of the espionage trials in China for Canadians Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig may be linked to trade talks between the US and China.
Meng was arrested on a U.S. warrant during a stopover in Vancouver in December 2018, just nine days before the two Canadians were detained.
"Canadian officials are seeking continued consular access to Mr. Spavor and Mr. Kovrig, in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the China-Canada Consular Agreement, and have also requested to attend the proceedings".
The United States wants Meng - the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei - extradited to face trial on charges related to the Chinese telecom equipment maker's alleged violations of U.S. sanctions against Iran. She is charged with lying to American banks about Huawei's alleged dealings with Iran, in violation of USA sanctions.
The two Canadians have been held in prison since their arrest in December 2018.
Both Meng and Huawei - the world's largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer - deny the charges.
Garneau expressed concern about them going to trial now, renewing objections to their "arbitrary detentions" and saying Ottawa "remains deeply troubled by the lack of transparency surrounding these proceedings".
"Canadian officials will continue to provide consular support to these men and their families during this unacceptable ordeal". They were formally indicted in June previous year.
Mr Kovrig worked for the International Crisis Group think tank.
Spavor had been a consultant and the director of Paektu Cultural Exchange, an organization that promotes investment and tourism in North Korea.
Meng's arrest enraged Beijing, which has also retaliated by restricting various Canadian exports, including canola oil seed, and handed death sentences to another four Canadians convicted of drug smuggling.
Following a call with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in February, he said: "Human beings are not bartering chips". "We urge the U.S.to correct its mistakes immediately and let Ms. Meng Wanzhou return to China safely immediately".
