Welcome to the official website of Karate Ontario

Karate Ontario is recognized by the provincial government (through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport) as the official sport governing body for karate in Ontario and is also recognized as the charter provincial representative for Karate Canada, the national sport governing body for Karate in Canada

This organization is responsible for organizing and regulating all aspects of karate within the province. Its ongoing commitment to the highest standards of quality is evident in its broad range of member services.

These services include, its comprehensive assessment of clubs wishing to join the organization, National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) courses leading to coaching accreditation and seminars with karate masters from around the world.

It leads a Referee Program that has developed local, regional, provincial, national and international accredited officials.

In support of its mandate to promote karate amongst all Ontarians as a lifelong activity, Karate Ontario has developed special programs such as the Long Term Athletes Development Program (LTAD), Athletes with a Disability, Long Term Officials Development Program (including a strong focus on women) an outreach program for Northern Ontario and a para-athletic program for disabled Ontarians to compete as well.

Members of Karate Ontario have a unique opportunity to compete at the provincial, national and international levels. This is made possible through Karate Ontario’s membership with Karate Canada which, in turn, is the only Canadian organization that is a member of the World Karate Federation as well as the Canadian Olympic Committee. Members wishing to explore other ways to engage in their local karate community can also take advantage of many exciting and rewarding seminar, clinic, recreational and volunteer opportunities.
