Curl BC welcomes BC curling facilities to host one of our nine championship events. The events include the Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship, the Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship, Presented by Best Western, the BC Junior Curling Championships, the AMJ Campbell BC Mixed Curling Championship, the BC Senior Curling Championships, the BC Masters Curling Championships, the BC Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, the BC Wheelchair Curling Championship and the BC U18 Curling Championships.
There are enormous benefits to hosting a Curl BC event, including:
- Increased revenue for your club
- Training for your volunteers
- Chance to learn from top ice-makers (for televised events and when requested)
- Chance to invite community groups into your rink, such as school groups and politicians (to increase interest in the game)
- Helping to build club community spirit
- And lots of fun to be had!
Curl BC welcomes bids for all our 2018 championship events.

Bids to Host National and International Competitions
The Board of Curl BC has set the following policy in order to permit Curl BC to more fully represent the economic scope of curling in BC and thus better position the sport to receive additional government and corporate support. This policy will strengthen the economic ties between Curl BC and a potential host committee so that both organizations are motivated to produce as financially successful an event as possible.
a) To receive sanctioning from Curl BC, a potential host committee must make a request to Curl BC, outlining the year and the name of the national or international event they wish to host.
b) Curl BC’s Board of Governors will approve the sanction based on the understanding that the host committee, if awarded the event, agrees to pay a 15% sanction fee (of net post-event revenue) to Curl BC.
c) Once Curl BC has received confirmation in writing from the potential host committee agreeing to the sanction fee, Curl BC will provide the Canadian Curling Association with an official sanction letter.
