Ireland's Rory McIlroy won the tournament at 22-under and will return to defend his title.
"I'm looking forward to getting back to Toronto to celebrate the return of the RBC Canadian Open," Thomas said in a statement on Twitter. "I enjoyed myself in 2019 and was really impressed by the energy of Canadian golf fans getting behind their National Open Championship."
With Thomas' entry, the RBC Canadian Open now features a star-studded leaderboard that has him joining McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Smith.
The RBC Canadian Open runs from June 6-12 at St. George's Golf and Country Club in Toronto.
