The Central Division is one of the two divisions in the National Basketball League of Canada (NBLC). The division consists of five teams, the Brampton A's, the KW Titans, the London Lightning, the Niagara River Lions, and the Windsor Express.



The London Lightning won the inaugural Central Division title with a 33-7 division record.[1]


Following the 2012-13 season, the Montreal Jazz switched divisions from central to Atlantic but before the season started, the NBL Board of Governors announced that the Montreal Jazz would sit out the 2013-14 NBL Canada season after failing to secure new ownership. [2] The expansion team, the Brampton A's and the Ottawa SkyHawks, were placed in the Central Division. The Windsor Express won the Central Division with a league best 29-11 record.


The Central Division was reduced to four teams with the folding of the Ottawa SkyHawks. The Windsor Express repeated as Central Division champions with a league best 21-11 record.


The Central Division will be increased to five teams with the addition of the Niagara River Lions, who will be based in St. Catharines, Ontario.
