Boxing Ontario

Boxing Ontario is the only governing body for Olympic-Style Boxing in Ontario.

As such, it is affiliated with Boxing Canada (CABA), the International Boxing Association (AIBA) and the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture, & Sport. Boxing Ontario was founded in the fall of 1972 and has seen a steady growth since then. Currently, Boxing Ontario encompasses more than 150 clubs, 1500 competitors and over 12,000 more recreational members.

In 2010 we moved from a geographic-representational model, to a skill-based board structure. Along with this, voting power was given to each club, where clubs get between 1 & 4 votes at the AGM. The number of votes a club gets is dependent on the number of registered members the club has. This new structure allowed us to elect an executive which was more efficient, while still allowing members across the province to have a voice, and participate in various working committees. 

Boxing Ontario Executive members are elected at an annual general meeting. All members are invited to attend, and voting is done by the registered delegates.

Financially, Boxing Ontario functions through club and member registration, fundraising and in large part through the support of the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries.

Operationally, Boxing Ontario owes a debt of gratitude to all the volunteers who give freely of their time and energies to keep the programs running smoothly.


To organize, promote develop interest and participation in the sport of Olympic-Style boxing in Ontario.
