The Canadian Cat Association was founded in 1960 with the intent to create a registry for Canadian cats, as prior to this, all Canadian cats were registered in the USA or Europe.[1]


In general, the association aims to promote cats and their well-being.[2][3]

The association provides breeder referrals, and run various shows across Canada. They also set breed standards, as well as train and license judges for cat shows in Canada. They run various cat shows across Canada, mostly in Ontario and Quebec.[4] The shows not only include classes for purebreds, but have special classes for unpedigreed cats.[5]

Their goals include promoting responsible cat ownership and creating a government lobby group.[6]

There are many clubs across Canada affiliated with the Canadian Cat Association.[7]
