November 27, 2015 - Registrations update

The last list of Foundation animals was approved by the Ministry February 20th. That list includes all but a few foundation animals needed to clear the backlog of registrations and transfers pending. We have another list to submit that should clear the remaining backlog.

Thank you all for your patience in these transition years, when many of you have experienced regrettably long wait times to receive registration papers and transfers. Our staff, volunteers, and staff at CLRC have been working hard to catch up on the backlog of work.

- Awards Nomination Form - Fillable

Commencing July 1st all services provided by the CWHBA will be GST/HST added.

Until now no GST or HST has been levied on CWHBA services, but the CWHBA is taxed by our suppliers and providers. To reduce the burden of this tax and to allow a flow through to our members who can claim HST/GST refunds, the Board made the application to Revenue Canada and recently received our new Business Number that will appear on all invoices.


Depending on the member's place of residence the following rates will apply to all other services including, but not limited to, registrations, inspections, mare entries, stallion licensing and transfers. Please read and follow the directions on the appropriate forms.

  • 13% HST NB, NL & ON Residents, 
  • 14% HST PEI Residents,
  • 15% HST NS Residents,
  • 5% GST AB, BC, MB, QC, SK, NT, NU, YT Residents. 

This change will be an inconvenience to some, but was necessary to bring us in line with standard business practice in Canada. Your cooperation is appreciated. Thank you!
