In October, she competed at the World Championships in Nanning, China. While Canada did not have their best day in qualifications, they still performed well enough to qualify a full team to the next World Championships.
Onyshko competed at the Elite Canada in late January, winning all-around silver, and balance beam and floor exercise bronze. The following month, she placed fifth in the all-around and on floor, seventh on bars, and eighth on beam at the WOGA Classic.

She helped the Canadian team to a silver medal finish, but had trouble individually. In the all-around, she had a mistake on the uneven bars that landed her in sixth place. She had the same mistake in the event finals, and finished last.
In October, she competed at the World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland. She helped the Canadians qualify a full team to the Olympics, place sixth in the team final, and finished sixteenth in the all-around. In late November, she won the all-around at the Mexico Open.
In February, Onyshko started off the season by winning four gold medals at the Elite Canada: all-around, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise.
