Alpaca Canada: the Alpaca specific division of the Canada Llama & Alpaca Association is the official voice of the Alpaca industry in Canada. It is responsible for all non-registry matters, including marketing and promotion of animals, marketing of product, shows, research, industry-wide communication and activities specific to alpacas.
The first official meeting for Alpaca Canada was held on February 25 and 26, 2006 with seven elected board directors. This meeting followed a lengthy two-year restructuring process that saw the Canadian Llama and Alpaca Association (CLAA) draft new bylaws and receive official approval from the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Foods Canada to establish two independent, incorporated breed divisions - one for alpacas and one for llamas.
Alpaca Canada represents the interests and evolving needs of its members and promotes the development of a viable, sustainable and integrated Canadian alpaca industry. The Alpaca Canada website is www.alpacacanada.com.
