The national sport governing body responsible for the development, promotion and organization of curling in Canada.


Curling began to draw recognition as an organized sport back in 1927 when the first Macdonald Brier was played at the Granite Curling Club in Toronto. ... An administrative body for the men's sport was created eight years later with the founding of the Dominion Curling Association on March 6, 1935. Thirty-two years later – in 1967, the year of Canada's centennial – the organization adjusted to the times and changed its name to the Canadian Curling Association.
