The mission of Curling Canada is to encourage and facilitate the growth and development of curling in cooperation with our network of affiliates.
Curling Canada’s Vision
In the year 2014 and beyond, curling in Canada – from the grassroots to the highest levels of competitive play – will be strong and vibrant. Curling clubs and Associations in Canada will offer a wide variety of participation opportunities for all residents of their communities. Opportunities to participate will reflect the changing needs of the cultural mosaic and lifestyles of Canadians, and allow for a healthy cross section of recreational through competitive play. Furthermore, the management practices of clubs, member associations and Curling Canada will parallel those of successful businesses by always keeping the best interests of curlers in mind.

The Board’s primary responsibility is to ensure the necessary programs and resources are established to develop, in the most general sense of the word, the sport of curling. The Board will fulfill these responsibilities by formulating and adopting policies, seeing that these policies are implemented by the Curling Canada CEO and professional staff and by evaluating the results. Further, the Board must carry out its functions openly, seeking the involvement of its members, corporate partners and staff.
In accordance with these principles, the Board operationally seeks to achieve the following goals:
