Foals born in 1994 & thereafter will be issued registration certificates when both sire and dam are entered in the Stud Book for the year of covering. 

Foals from non entered stallions may receive registration certificates if they meet the pedigree requirements of the Stud Book regulations. This provision includes foals from acknowledged stallions standing in foreign countries. An additional fee will be levied for these registrations. 

Registration certificates are numbered according to the system "PP-[CAN]NNNN-YY DD", where:

  1. PP is a two letter code corresponding to the Province or region of birth. (OT = out of country)
    AB - Alberta NS - Nova Scotia
    BC - British Columbia ON - Ontario
    MB - Manitoba PE - Prince Edward Island
    NB - New Brunswick PQ - Quebec
    NF - Newfoundland SK - Saskatchewan
    YK - Yukon NT - North West Territories
  2. [CAN] indicates a Canadian born horse - for registrations processed from 1998 on
  3. NNNN is a four digit identification number.
  4. YY is a two digit number corresponding to the year of birth.
  5. DD is a 1 or two letter/digit code corresponding to the Studbook division; foal papers will be issued G (or A).

Example: AB-[CAN]1234-92 MM shall mean the Province of Alberta [Canada], serial number 1234, born 1992, entered in the Main Mare Book.
