Ferland was a member of the 2007 Quebec champion team, that was skipped by Pierre Charette. Ferland threw last stones for the team. At that first Brier, Ferland's team finished with a 4-7 record.
Ferland was also the 1989 provincial junior champion skip. He skipped Quebec to the finals at the 1989 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, but lost to Dean Joanisse of British Columbia in the final.
Ferland has been one of the more visible Quebec based teams on the World Curling Tour, regularly competing in WCT events, while other Quebec rinks are less visible. Despite this, Ferland has regularly played second-fiddle to Jean-Michel Ménard when it has come to Quebec playdowns. Since winning the 2007 provincial championship with Charette, Ferland has lost the last three provincial finals, two of which were against Ménard. Ferland has won a total of three WCT events, including one Grand Slam event, The National in 2003. It remains the only Grand Slam victory for a Quebec team.
