The CLRC started life in the 20s as a government department. As privatization
advanced in Canada it became a Non-profit Crown Corporation directed by
elected Directors from the various animal breed societies
who use the CLRC for their registrations. The CTHS is one of
these. In 1996 the CLRC lost $50,000, the the last of its
governement funding. Since that time it operates as a non-profit corporation
with all its revenues coming from the member associations. Pressently
there are at 57 animal societies members of the CLRC representing
goats, horses, pigs , cattle etc.
