The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company has announced its sponsorship of the Dominion Curling Club Championship, for men’s and women’s teams which have won their respective local club championships. The national event will take place at the St. George’s Golf and Country Club, Etobicoke, Ontario in late November of 2009, and will move to other clubs across Canada in future years. Any profit generated from The Dominion Curling Club Championship will be directed to charities including the Canadian Paraplegic Association (CPA), as well as developmental curling initiatives in communities across Canada.
On PEI, the provincial event, also sponsored by The Dominion, will replace the Provincial Intermediate curling championships, and will take place March 13-15 at the Crapaud Community Curling Club. Eligibility rules and other details will be made available as the event approaches.
