The Travelers Men's Northern Ontario Curling Association (NOCA) Provincials is the Northern Ontario provincial championship for men's curling. The winner represents Team Northern Ontarioannually at the Tim Hortons Brier. Northern Ontario has been represented at the Brier since 1927 despite not actually being a province. This historical fact has guaranteed Northern Ontario a separate team from Ontario in every national championship except the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

Previous names include the Dominion of Canada Northern Ontario Men's Curling Championship (2007-2013) Kia Cup (2006), Labatt Tankard (?-1999?; 2001-2005), and Nokia Cup (2000). It has been known as the Dominion of Canada Championships since 2007. The event is sponsored by The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company.

Qualifying[edit]

9 teams play at the Northern Ontario provincial. Three teams are selected from the East qualifier and three teams from the west qualifier. An additional team is selected each from an East last chance qualifier and one from a West last chance qualifier. The final team is selected by being the number one team from the region on the CTRS ranking as of December 31.
