About the Ontario Provincial Bowl
Ever since its inaugural event in March of 2020, the Ontario Ethics Bowl (OEB) has enjoyed explosive growth. With over 600 participating students, 300 judges, and 200+ volunteers, the OEB is a behemoth on the Ethics Bowl Canada stage.
Unique characteristics of the Ontario Ethics Bowl include ambassadors, a system in which OEB alumni mentor and support current teams, helping them as they compete (and collaborate!) their way to Ethics Bowl glory. Second, every OEB team can create their own high school club which, in addition to special Ethics Bowl perks, is a great way for students to put their own personal stamp on their high school experience.
Let’s face it, every Ethics Bowler’s dream is to qualify for the national competition. In Ontario, the path to nationals is a winding journey. Every registered team automatically qualifies for a regional event. Regional qualifiers take place at OEB partner universities: Western, Guelph, McMaster, University of Toronto, Toronto Metropolitan, Queens, and Carleton. A virtual qualifier is available to teams who cannot attend an in-person event.
The top 16 teams from the qualifiers will attend the Ontario Championship (OC), from which the top team will advance to the national finals.

Look at this building. It’s stunning and the memories created inside will last a lifetime. The national competition in Winnipeg is the grand finale of the Ethics Bowl Canada season — you won’t want to miss it. Work hard, think collaboratively, and maybe we will see you in April for the national championship.

The Ethics Bowl isn’t simply about helping students think abstractly about moral dilemmas, though that’s important. At its best, the Bowl is really about enacting moments of personal and social transformation in the lives of actual, young people.
