Kitchener is one of three changes for the final with Warriors teammate Miles Benjamin coming in for Topsy Ojo on the wing and Harlequins full-back Mike Brown getting the nod ahead of Alex Goode.
With Attwood likely to miss this year’s World Cup with a knee injury, Kitchener is emerging as a contender to break into the reigning RBS 6 Nations champions England’s World Cup squad.
The Saxons head into the final on the back of two comfortable group wins over USA and Tonga and are looking to retain the title they won last year against the Canucks.
But head coach Stuart Lancaster warned his side they would have to be wary of the challenge of a Canadian team which has welcomed the return of Clermont second row Jamie Cudmore for this competition.
“We're aware of the threat that Canada pose,” said Lancaster.
“They've played well in their wins against Italy A and Russia. They're a fit, well-coached and organised side who have spent a considerable amount of time together over the last few years.
“They will fight for the full 80 minutes so we've got a big challenge ahead of us to retain the trophy.
“It's disappointing to lose Dave Attwood off the back of three good performances against the Barbarians and in the Churchill Cup but it's a great opportunity for Graham Kitchener.
“We're confident about what he can deliver having played so well against Italy A at Worcester earlier in the season.”
