From November 14 to 18, 2018 the RCD will be hosting its 12th annual wheelchair curling bonspiel tournament – 2018 Canadian Open. 

Wheelchair curling tournaments have been staged at the Paralympics since the Winter Paralympic Games in 2006 in Turin. The 2018 Winter Paralympics was held from March 10 to 17, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. Gold medal went to Team China, Silver to Team Norway and Bronze to Team Canada. As of May 2018, the current Wheelchair World Rankings Top Five is in the order of: China, Norway, Russia, Canada and Korea.

In 2017, the RCD International Bonspiel saw the keen competition of 12 teams, we hope to have the participation of more teams, with high caliber athletes and increased international presence as the Paralympics wheelchair curling champion team hosting the bonspiel. The RCD strives to make this event nationally and internationally acclaimed and hope to attract quality competitors worldwide and bring the global stage to Richmond.
