About the Ottawa Provincial Bowl
If you are ready to enroll your team right now, you can begin your application at the button below. We will prompt you with a few identification questions, so we can file your application in the correct queue, and open an account for you in our system. This will make the application process a lot easier for you, and easier for our provincial director to validate your application upon its receipt. Please note that to qualify for participation, teams must have a minimum of 3 students and no more than 6 students. You may also register more than one team. You are not required to complete payment, however, until your application is processed.

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.
The ethics bowl gives 100% when it comes to teacher and team support. At any point in during the season teachers/teams may schedule a one-on-one training session with an ethics bowl advisor who will answer their questions and help the group feel prepared for competition day. Teams may submit their arguments in advance of the competition to an ethics bowl professional (graduate student in philosophy) to receive feedback and guidance. Lastly, and this is a doozy, teams may schedule practice matches with other schools to get the full ethics bowl experience before the actual competition. The ethics bowl will provide a moderator and tech support for practice every match.
All of the above is included in the price of registration.

The top team (maybe more) from the virtual event automatically qualifies for the Ontario Championship, the premier ethics bowl competition in Ontario hosted this year at the University of Toronto, Mississauga.

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.
