four (4) athletes + one (1) coach for the men’s event & four (4) athletes + one (1) coach for the women’s event (note beginning in 2019).
Curling Canada will manage the bookings via their travel agent(s) and Curling Canada will be responsible for full payment. Without exception, all travel will be pre-approved by Curling Canada.
For the four named events beginning in 2017-18, Curling Canada will pay 67% of any team’s hotel bill to a maximum of:
- Two (2) rooms for a maximum eight (8) days for the Mixed
- Three (3) rooms for a maximum eleven (11) days for the Juniors
- Two (2) rooms for a maximum eight (8) days for the Seniors
- Three (3) rooms for a maximum eight (8) days for the Wheelchair
- No hotel subsidy for the Under-18
As example, assume the rates for the juniors are $100 per night including all taxes. The team is on site for 11 days and books three rooms. The total cost is 3 x 11 x $100 or $3300. Curling Canada would refund $2211. The team’s portion would be $1089.
Teams will book and pay for their own rooms and then will submit their hotel invoices for re-imbursement after the event. We will reimburse any team within one week of receiving the invoice.
This accommodation subsidy is based on a Stay-To-Play policy which means teams are eligible for the 67% refund only if they stay in the Curling Canada designated Host Hotel. Curling Canada will make best efforts to book at a minimum, 3-star+ hotels with appropriate amenities and reasonable prices.
