Presidents Message 2018:

It is my pleasure on behalf of the National Executive and the Organizing Commitee to take this opportunity to welcome all competitors to Calgary for the 2018 Canadian Police Curling Championships. As we all know it takes a tremendous amount of time to organize our National championships and I would like to thank Joel Matthews and his Committee for all their dedication and time in organizing this year's event to the huge success it will be.

It is my pleasure to announce that World Financial Group - WFG have come on board to support and sponsor Canadian Police Curling. Calgary Host Joel Matthews and the CPCA Executive have worked hard to secure this National Sponsorship. Provincially, WFG will also become our Presenting Sponsor for police curling in all regions. Robb Befus who is it the Executive Marketing Officer for WFG, stated "We are now very excited to be partnering with the CPCA over the next few years to corporately sponsor your Canadian Curling Championships!". "When we announced that the home office was begining this new partnership with the CPCA, our field agents from across Canada reached out and asked how they could become involved in this great partnership. After learning where all the Provincial play downs are to be held this year, we contacted our local offices in or near the cities to have someone locally sponsor the events." Full details of the financial commitments will be disclosed to the membership at the Annual General Meeting in Calgary in April.

In 1955, the Canadian Association of the Chiefs of Police formed the CPCA for the purpose of encouraging fellowship and liason amoung Canadian police officers as well as promoting the game of curling in Canada. Since that time there has been a Canadian Championship held annually at various locations across the Country. In 2016 the mandate was expanded to include peace officers as well as police officers. WFG wants to promote and assist us with police curling to see the number of teams continue to grow in each Province, let's take advantage of the wonderful opportunity and grow the sport of police curling once again!

Canadian Police Curling Association

Presidents Message 2017:

I want to convey my appreciation for your expression of faith in me by electing me your President for the next two years.  I am looking forward to collaborating with our new Vice President, Tony Chilton; our Secretary Treasurer, Steve Meunier and all of the Provincial Co-ordinators to ensure the continued success of our great Association.

It is the fellowship, comaraderie, and friendships within the membership that makes our group so special.  I was very pleased to see the large number (12) of first time participants at this year’s Championship. We must continue to strive to bring in more new members as we move forward.

I will strive to further our relationships with our current partners, especially WFG Financial and Tourette Canada and endeavour to expand partnerships with others to make our Association financially secure in the future.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Fredericton Host Committee; and especially the Host Chairs, Lorne House and Joe Roper along with their spouses, Gladys and Trudy, for providing a fabulous week of curling and social events.  Once again, you have done the CPCA proud in providing such a fantastic show.

I am looking forward to working with our 2018 Host Chairman, Joel Matthews and his Committee in preparing for next year’s Championship in Calgary.

Let us go forward working together to enhance our Championship by welcoming new Peace Officers from across this great Country to our Association and working to ensure a sound financial base going forward.

Yours in Curling

Stuart Knockwood
