About the CBA

The Canadian Bison Association (CBA) is a non-profit organization which was established to represent the interests of the bison industry.

The Canadian Bison Association is responsible for providing guidance on a number of issues including: marketing, animal health, research, animal identification, government liaison, trade, traceability, the bison registry, conservation and other developmental initiatives.

There are six active regional associations representing Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and BC- each having the ability to appoint two directors to the CBA board with Alberta able to appoint three directors. The National Bison Association in the United States recommends the international director appointment. The Maritime Association is not active at this time.

The Canadian Bison Association is managed by a President who is elected from one of the board members appointed by the regional associations. The CBA consists of an Executive Director and an Office Administrator with contract staff hired when required.

The Canadian Bison Association has approximately 550 members throughout Canada. There are also a number of members from the United States.
