The Ontario Curling Council supports clubs through its member associations the Ontario Curling Association (OCA) and Northern Ontario Curling Association (NOCA). Membership in an associated club of either the OCA or NOCA also means membership with the OCC. Commitment to working together to increase opportunities for Ontarians to curl, supporting programs and services, and improving the strength of Ontario curling clubs through education, programming and expertise is a strategic priority. The OCC is responsible for province-wide initiatives on behalf of its member associations OCA and NOCA.
