The 2010 CONCACAF Women's World Cup Qualifying tournament served as the region's 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup Qualifiers. The tournament finals took place from 28 October to 8 November 2010 in Cancún, Mexico. Officially, this marked the sixth edition of the competition (starting in 1991), which included the 2002 and 2006 editions of the CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup. Canada won the tournament, its second CONCACAF women's title.

The United States, Canada and Mexico received byes into the tournament after taking the top three positions in the 2006 Gold Cup, while five other spots were determined through regional qualification.

Canada and Mexico, by virtue of their semi-final wins, qualified automatically for the 2011 Women's World Cup, while third-place USA advanced to a play-off against Italy for a further finals berth. Also, Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago qualified at the 2011 Pan American Games.

Canada won the tournament with a 1–0 win over Mexico in the Final. Just like during their 1998 CONCACAF Women's Championship win, Canada did not concede a single goal against in the entire tournament. They scored 17 goals, while allowing none, to win their second CONCACAF Women's World Cup Qualifier. Contrasting Canada's success, the USA's semifinal loss to Mexico marked the first time ever that the USA did not win a World Cup qualifying match. It was also the second time that the USA failed to appear in a CONCACAF final match, though only because they did not participate in the 1998 Championship.
