The Canadian Llama and Alpaca Association
The Canadian Llama and Alpaca Association was formed in 1987 and incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act of Canada in 1989.
Only one breed association per breed is incorporated under this act and given authority to represent that specific breed. They have sole authority to represent a breed(s) and manage a public registry for the breed, to issue registration certificates, to establish breed standards and rules of eligibility for registration and define what is a purebred.
The breed association or Registry in Canada responsible for these activities with regard to alpacas and llamas is the Canadian Llama and Alpaca Association.
