After much discussion, the Board of Directors of the CBCA is unanimous in its decision on eligibility for the Canadian Championship. The decision states as follows:
Eligibility for the Canadian Championships for both Open and Nursery requires that the handler must have a CBCA membership and the dog must be CBCA registered. The membership and registration must be post marked by June 1 of the current year and sent to the CBCA registrar. There is no trialing requirement.
In addition to the above, nursery dogs must have been imported into North America prior to their first birthday.
