Welcome to the Ontario Karate Federation (OKF). As of Jan 01, 2017 OKF became the official provincial delegate for Karate Canada and is working towards achieving full recognition by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport to be the official sport governing body for karate in Ontario.
OKF was officially founded in 2016, but was the result of several years of meetings between, and feedback from, many of the legacy dojos, coaches, athletes and officials from across Ontario. We are thankful to the large number of individuals who contributed in various ways at all stages of development. We do, however, also acknowledge that some were unaware of this impending change, as it was kept vlow key in an attempt to assure success. At this time, as we move forwards together, OKF encourages everyone to become involved in the continued growth and success of the organization during these initial exciting stages!
Ontario Karate Federation is focused on improving the promotion and accessibility of the sport of karate to its members and to the general public. The aim is to improve participation at the entry level; to enhance development programs for athletes, coaches and officials; and to be recognized for the excellence of our members at all levels of sport. This organization intends to fill the voids of the previous PSO, as indicated by some of the largest, most successful and influential dojos.
Through transparency, regular communications, and active involvement of all members, OKF will continue to expand its member benefits and provide innovative and accessible programs across all areas of development. Members from across the province will be encouraged to provide feedback, be active within the organization and benefit from involvement with the OKF and its other members.
It is through Ontario Karate Federation membership that karate-ka will be able to participate in events hosted by Karate Canada, the PKF and the WKF.
Working Mission Statement: To create and maintain a supportive and nurturing environment that will enable and inspire the karate community in Ontario to achieve their goals.
