The Canadian Horse Breeders Association (CHBA) is the official breed management organization. It’s a federal association incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act (APA). It’s responsible for maintaining the pedigree registry and defining the breed standards. It is governed by a Board of nine volunteer directors.
The Canadian Livestock Records Corporations (CLRC) is mandated by the CHBA to maintain the pedigree registry and uphold the regulations set out in section 9 of the by-laws. The CLRC is a private non-profit organization incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act (APA). Its registrars maintain the records for some fifty animal breeds (including the Canadian horse).
Since the CLRC is mandated by the CHBA to maintain its records, you will receive many communications from them, but always for and on behalf of the CHBA.
