The "Branch"was once the governing body for curling in Quebec. In 1852, the Montreal and Quebec City Curling Clubs sought affiliation with the Royal Caledonian Curling Club and hence the "Branch", the Canadian Branch of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club, was born.

The Canadian Branch facilitates events with the Ottawa Valley Curling Association (OVCA), the Grand National Curling Club of America (GNCC), and Curling Quebec (CQ) member clubs. This allows club curlers to match their skills against other similar players. The Branch is divided into five districts, four of which are located in the province of Québec, outside the Outaouais region

The Branch oversees the following annual competitions:

Canadian Branch Pat Lid
Canadian Branch Colts (champions of GNCC, OVCA Colts and Colts du Quebec)
Governor Generals (restricted to OVCA and CQ clubs)
Gordon International Medal 
Doug Washer Junior Open
Quebec Challenge 
Tim Caverly Christmas Bonspiel
