The Tim Hortons Brier brings together the best in curling from competitors, to spectators, to volunteers – becoming a community with one goal in mind – a great curling event. Volunteers invest their time, ensuring that this year’s competition is not only successful, but memorable for all parties – from organization to participant level, attendees and everyone in between.

Volunteers are the backbone of events – it is the value of these extra hands that enables organizations to offer activities that may not otherwise happen. Their meaningful contributions both behind and in front of the scenes are indispensable and their tireless efforts are often as profound as the event itself.
