Program Details
 
 
  The federal Animal Pedigree Act promotes breed improvement and protects those who purchase and raise animals through the incorporation of animal pedigree associations. National breed associations are incorporated under this Act who agree to take on the responsibility to establish a registry and represent breeders throughout Canada. Breed associations maintain pedigree records and issue certificates of registration as their primary responsibility.

Application to incorporate a breed association may be made by five or more persons who are at least 18 years old and Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Only one breed association may be incorporated in respect of each distinct breed, or evolving breed.

For more information, see the Animal Pedigree Act.
