The Canadian Dinghy Association (CDA) is the governing body of the International 14 class sailing in Canada. The major responsibilities of the CDA include organizing the racing schedule, and developing and promoting the fleet in Canada.

The CDA is also responsible for representing the Canadian fleet internationally. The World Council meets at each world championship to plan upcoming international events, discuss and debate the development of the class, and to discuss challenges and successes in each of the national fleets.

The CDA executive is made up of elected representatives from the fleet.

The Canadian Dinghy Association First Annual Regatta was held August 7 and 8, 1949 at the Britannia Boating Club, now known as the Britannia Yacht Club in Ottawa, Ontario.
