ABOUT US

WHO IS CAHDS?

CAHDS exists to promote, develop and regulate Harness Dog Sports across Canada.

CAHDS membership is made up of our Regional Organizations, the individuals appointed to our Board of Directors by our Regional Organizations, and an Independent Representative selected by the Board who acts as a voice for those provinces & territories in Canada that are presently without Regional Organizations sanctioned by CAHDS. 

If there is no Regional Organization in your area, you can also become a member of CAHDS as an "Independant Member". More information on Independant Memberships can be found here. 

CAHDS REGIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

Regional Organizations are integral to the growth and development of harness dog sports in Canada. The CAHDS Board works closely with our Regional Organizations to implement and organize initiatives, populate committees and working groups and flush out ideas.

Your Regional Organization is also your avenue of communication to CAHDS. Any concerns or suggestions you have regarding CAHDS initiatives, events, or direction should go through your Regional Organization. If there is no Regional Organization in your province or territory, please reach out to CAHDS directly!
