Ontario Curling Council
ParaSport Role: Partners
The Ontario Curling Council is the recognized provincial sport organization for the sport of curling in Ontario. Curling can be enjoyed by everyone and each year more facilities are becoming accessible. Para-curling disciplines include Wheelchair Curling and Visually Impaired Curling. We sanction and operate competitions for Wheelchair Curling as it is a Paralympic Sport. Visually Impaired Curling is included in the Parasport Winter Games which we administer for the province of Ontario.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
