The national sponsorship agreement between Travelers and Curling Canada (along with all of its provincial member associations) will end after the conclusion of the 2017-18 season following the Canadian Club Curling Championship in Miramachi, New-Brunswick in November 2018.
What effect will that have in Quebec? The provincial championship will still be held annually in April however the nomenclature will be changed to the “Curling Club Provincial Championship” and the winning teams will still go on to represent Quebec at the Canadian championship. However, since there is currently no event sponsor, no financial assistance will be offered to the participating teams (hotel refunds, banquet, etc.) and this is both for the provincial championships as well as Canadian championships.
Curling Canada is actively searching for a new sponsor to support the curling club championships and Curling Quebec will keep you all informed of any and all changes.
