Canadian Identification Project

Established in 1997. The Canadian Identification Project is applicable only to animals not registrable or identifiable under the Animal Pedigree Act.

CLRC's registry for non-purebred animals is fully operational, and any animal which cannot be registered with a breed association incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act is eligible. The Canadian Identification Project takes advantage of CLRC's long standing experience in the pedigree business as well as expertise in a multi-breed and species environment.
All that is needed to record an animal in Can Id is a name, sex and some sort of identification, whether it be a tattoo, ear tag, microchip or photo. If more information is available, it can be
accepted.

To simplify the process, applications will be accepted by mail, fax or electronically. The application can be either filled out directly on the Internet and submitted automatically or printed, completed and then mailed or faxed.
Two different certificate designs are available. The more basic certificate features the Can Id logo and a red seal. The deluxe certificate has a gold embossed seal and space for a color photograph of the animal. Both certificates are printed on high quality paper and have space for up to 3 generations of ancestry. CLRC sees the main market for this registry to be the pet and horse sector but is also intended to cover non-purebred livestock of other species and even exotic animals.

The Equine Canadian Identification Project (EQUINE CAN ID) is CLRC's record for non-purebred horses of
all types. Any horse, pony, donkey or mule that is not eligible for registration with a Canadian breed
association can be recorded under this project, and you will receive an attractive certificate.

All that is needed to record an animal in EQUINE CAN ID is a name, sex, approximate birth date, and
some identification, whether it be a tattoo, ear tag, microchip, or photo, and the owner’s name and
address. While this is the minimum information required, pedigree information (up to 3 generations of
ancestry) can be included if known and submitted with your application.

To simplify the process, applications are accepted by mail, fax, or electronically. The application can either be filled out directly on the Internet and
submitted, or printed, completed and then mailed or faxed.

Two certificate designs are available. Both feature the CLRC logo and red CLRC seal. The more basic
certificate is for animals identified by microchip, tattoo, or tag, while the deluxe certificate includes a
colour photograph of the animal. Both styles are printed on our deluxe colour printers on high
quality paper and have space for up to 3 generations of ancestry.
The following is a sample of the deluxe certificate. The basic certificate is similar except no space is
allowed for a photograph of the animal.
