The Canadian Fire Fighter Curling Association is a national organization started as the result of the dedicated efforts of a Vancouver fire fighter named Aubrey Neff. He first organized a Vancouver Fire Department League and the British Columbia Fire Fighters Curling Association. In 1958, Aubrey sent correspondance to fire fighters in every major city in Canada proposing a dream of a Dominion Fire Fighters Curling Championship.

The results are as follows:

1958 - Provincial Associations were formed in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

1959 - Provincial Playdowns were held in four Provinces.
1960 - A five province Dominion Championship was held in Regina. A Canadian Executive was elected. (President Aubrey Neff)

1961 - A six province Championship was held in Winnipeg.

1962 - First All Star Awards were presented.

1964 - An eight province Championship was held in Vancouver.

1969 - A ten team Championship was hosted in Scarborough.

1973 - Northwest Territories competed for the first time in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

1983 - Newfoundland sent representation to the event hosted in Brampton.

2001 - Newfoundland and Labrador hosted for the first time in St. John's.

Mr. Neff's dream had become a reality, the Canadian Fire Fighters Curling Association. This is the only competition that gathers fire fighters from every province and territory in Canada to compete for a national championship. Every province and territory has now hosted this event.

Sadly, Aubrey Neff, our founding father passed away in Chilliwack, B.C. on Sunday, March 9, 1997, at the age of 74, after losing a courageous battle with cancer. The memory of his legacy will live on in the hearts of every fire fighter who participates in this curling championship. One man's dream remains a reality for all who continue to champion his cause.......


The history of the Canadian (Dominion) Fire Fighters Curling Association is kept in a display cabinet in the Winnipeg Fire Museum.
There are copies of ALL of the old event programs going back to 1960 as well as the Life Member and Hall of Fame Awards.
