All events except the BC Winter Games lead to national curling championships. B.C. will also host one of the national curling championship games, the 2020 New Holland Canadian Junior Curling Championships, in Langley.

Some of the world championship games can be found in B.C. as well. Prince George will host the 2020 World Women’s Curling Championship and Kelowna will take the 2020 World Senior and Mixed Doubles Championships.

“The year 2020 will be a great year of competition in B.C.,” said Curl BC’s Competitions Manager, Will Sutton. “We are really looking forward to helping make these events a positive experience for curlers, club volunteers and curling fans.”

The development, promotion and organization of curling in the province is managed by Curl BC. The organization also governs the championship system that declares provincial representation at national events.
