Membership is community.
In addition to being part of the largest beef breed in Canada, membership in the Canadian Angus Association provides you with rights, privileges and access to information to assist you in superior breed development to help ensure your success in the purebred business.
Making more time for yourself, your family and running your business means that you have to be your most efficient self. This requires the power you get from a community. Let’s all be more efficient together. This is the power of membership, organization and community.

The benefits of membership include:
Applying for Membership
Individual, Partnership or Company
You may join the Association and have your membership issued in your individual name, in the name of a partnership, or the name under which you operate your business.
When you apply for a membership, you should clearly indicate the name in which the membership is to be issued. If registrations are to be issued in the name of the individual person, the membership should be in the name of the individual; if they are to be issued in the name of a farm or ranch, the membership should be in the exact name of the farm or ranch; if they are to be issued in the name of the partnership, the membership should be in the exact name of the partnership; if they are to be issued in the name of a company, then the membership should be in the exact name of the company.
If two of more members of the Canadian Angus Association wish to own cattle jointly, they are required to take out a partnership membership. The partnership would thus be shown as the owner of the animal(s) on the registration certificate. Registered tattoo letters are required to register calves in the name of a partnership.
Commercial producers are producers who have had a purebred animal transferred into their name, but do not register breeding stock. By owning a registered Angus animal, commercial producer members qualify to purchase Canadian Angus RFID indicators, which visually and electronically identify Angus influence cattle.
Commercial producers do not need to apply for membership; a commercial membership is automatically granted when the animal is transferred. Commercial producers are able to transfer animals through the Association and are subject to the same rules and regulations as members.
Non-Resident membership is available to individual residents outside of Canada. Non-resident members are not able to hold office and are not eligible to vote.
Junior memberships are available to individuals who are 21 years of age or younger. Junior members have the same rights and privileges as members, but do not have the right to hold office in the Association. A Junior membership application must include the birth date of the junior member making the application.
Young Breeder Membership
A special membership rate is available to Young Angus breeders who are between the ages of 22-31. A date of birth is required on file for these members to receive the special membership rate.
Life memberships were available for purchase by individuals prior to July 1, 1980. They are non-transferable and are no longer available. Life members are entitled to vote and hold office in the Association. An annual activity fee is charged to life members who are active breeders and wish to conduct transactions such as registering and transferring cattle.
