National/Provincial Structure

Representing and serving the broad needs of equestrians in Canada is accomplished through partnerships between Equine Canada, as the nationally recognized organization, and many other organizations. A key partnership is the one between EC and the Provincial Sport Organizations or PSOs. EC recognizes one representative organization in each province across Canada and that PSO participates directly in policy development, sport administration and delivering member services. These PSOs also provide provincially-specific programs within their jurisdictions in the sport, industry and recreation of horses. The PSOs across Canada send representatives to Equine Canada’s Provinces Division Council, providing a forum to meet, discuss and provide input on issues of common interest.

For more information on the role of the Provinces Division and Council within Equine Canada, please refer to our Governance Policy Manual.

Contact information for each recognized PSO can be found on the Provincial Contacts page.
