The Guelph Curling Club is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all members and guests. The club has been a gathering spot for the community since 1838 for all different types of functions, including curling, cultural celebrations, dance recitals, weddings, meetings, and more. It is the goal of our Board and Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) Committee that each person who enters the facility will feel a sense of belonging.
The club has committed to projects with CurlON and Dr. Heather Mair, with the University of Waterloo to ensure that the sport of curling is diverse and inclusive moving forward. Our club is also proud to support the UnitedWeCurl initiative and is a primary focus around all future plans and partnerships.
The IDEA Committee is working to address the existing barriers within our club, which may deter some community members from experiencing the opportunities that our club offers.
