Is my Club or Team affiliated for the season?

Clubs and teams are added to the membership registration selection option menu as they affiliate for the calendar year with the OCA. If your club or team is not on the list, they have yet to complete the affiliation process for the current season.

If your Club/Team is affiliated outside of Ontario, please contact the OCA office to let us know what governing body has affiliated your Club/Team and the official name. Once confirmed, this can be added to your Race License.

Can I still apply for a membership if my club or team have not yet affiliated?

If your club/team is not on the list, you will not be able to get your membership with their name on it until they do. If you apply for your UCI License or Provincial Race License as an Independent, we will process it as such and you will need to change the affiliation once your Club/Team affiliates. There is a $12 reprocessing fee to reprint any UCI License (no cost if only issued digitally). All Affiliate Club Memberships must be tied to an OCA Affiliated club.

Am I applying for a category I qualify for?

If you are looking to upgrade or downgrade and don’t have the points to do so, your license application will be delayed. All upgrade/downgrade requests outside of the point structure currently in place should be submitted using the OCA’s Upgrade/Downgrade Request Form. Applications received with the incorrect category and no upgrade/downgrade request submitted will be issued with the previously approved category (or entry level for new members).

Am I legally able to agree to the waiver?

A rider under the age of 18 requires a parent or legal guardian to agree to ALL aspects of the waiver form (including the declaration and Anti-Doping Policy for UCI License applicants) before the membership application will be processed. If you do not have a parent/guardian with you at the time of applying, you will be able to email them a link to the waiver to complete and once that is submitted, the membership will go into the processing queue.

Do I have an appropriate head-shot photo for my membership?

Members will have to upload a Drivers License/Passport style photo (smiling is allowed) to their CCN profile for the following memberships:

  • UCI License – MANDATORY
  • Provincial Race License– OPTIONAL
  • Associate Club Memberships or General Memberships– NOT REQUIRED

Any photo that is not a head-shot photo, or has any items like hats, helmets, sunglasses, etc. which block the viewing of a person’s face or head, will be rejected and result in the license taking longer to process.

I need a UCI Technical License. What are the requirements?

If you are a Commissaire/ Staff please select Technical License.

If you need a UCI Race License and are also a Commissaire/Coach or Staff (manager, soigneur, mechanic etc.), you will need to add the Technical License membership option before completing your purchase.  You will only be charged for the UCI Race License. (Note: UCI Technical License holders looking to participate in OCA Sanctioned Events may hold a Provincial Race License and a UCI Technical UCI License simultaneously. 

Staff Requirements

  • Manager: Must have completed a Provincial C Commissaire/ Manager’s Course.  For Managers of UCI or CCC Trade Teams, a separate Director Sportif course offered by Cycling Canada is required.
  • Coach:  Must be an NCCP Certified Coach and provide NCCP certification number.
  • Commissaire:  Must have taken a commissaire course AND be active.  Those who have not done a commissaire assignment in a couple of years will need to re-do the course.
  • Driver:  Must have completed Cycling Canada Driver Caravan Training Course online.
  • Soigneur:  Only a registered medical practitioner may receive this designation.  Proof must be provided to the OCA.

I want to race at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton this year.  What license do I need?

If you plan to compete at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre for Provincials, Nationals,  Ontario Cup or another OCA sanctioned event (excluding Youth Track Development Series), you will be required to hold a UCI Track License, UCI Race License (Road/MTB/CX/Track) or Provincial Race License.  If purchasing a multi-discipline UCI Race License or Provincial Race License to compete in track, be sure that you select the track option and select a category. (Note for 2022 season: Individuals looking to race Track in 2022 in OCA Sanctioned Events can purchase a Provincial Race License. Events such as Nationals or UCI sanctioned events will require a UCI License.)
