We are over half-way through the Special Referendum process and fellow breeders need your vote to welcome 16 new breeds into our registry.
For over 125 years, CKC members have supported the recognition of all of the breeds that are currently recognized today. If you vote in favour of recognizing new breeds, you help continue this tradition so these new breeds are preserved and promoted in Canada.
In order for the Ministry of Agriculture to approve CKC recognition of a breed, at least 25% of our membership must cast a ballot and of those who cast a ballot, two-thirds must be in favour.
We currently need almost 1,000 votes by December 1 to meet this requirement!
You don’t need specific knowledge about the breeds listed in the special referendum in order to vote. We simply ask that you vote.
If you vote in favour of recognizing new breeds, you enable:
- Breeds to be eligible for CKC registration – which means that breeders can register their litters and dogs and obtain a CKC certificate and CKC pedigree.
- Canadian-born dogs to be exported internationally and be eligible for registration in a foreign country.
