Canadian Curling Association

Canadian Curling Association

The Canadian Curling Association (CCA) is a Canadian organization responsible for encouraging and facilitating growth and development of the sport of curling. The CCA is associated with more than a dozen provincial and territorial curling associations across the country.


The CCA was created in 1990 when Curl Canada and the Canadian Ladies' Curling Association amalgamated. From its creation until 2007, Dave Parkes was the General Manager and then Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Greg Stemlaw is now CEO.
