Win Your Curling Fee!

In the summer of 2022, the OVCA started a long-term strategic review process.  As the curling world emerged from the public health emergency, the OVCA needed an updated mission and strategic plan in order to best serve its members and their curlers.

As a part of this review, the OVCA is looking for your input and opinions. With this survey, you’ll have the chance to help shape the OVCA’s future and provide us with your ideas and opinions.

The survey should only take a few minutes of your time to complete.  As a thank you, you can choose to enter a special draw to WIN YOUR 2024-25 CURLING SEASON FOR FREE!  That’s right – the OVCA will pay the curling fees of six lucky respondents (one for each OVCA Region – City, East, South, Upper Valley, Lower Valley and Outaouais).

Please take a minute to give us your feedback, and you could curl for free in 24-25.
