It maintains breed registries services for those purebred dogs approved for its control by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and provides governance for all CKC-approved dog conformation shows, dog trials and canine events.[1][2] The CKC is a non-member partner with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale.[3]
