The Canadian Pigeon Fancier’s Association
established in 1902
The Canadian Pigeon Fancier’s Association, a Federal non profit corporation established in 1902, is the national association for the hobby of pigeon keeping all across Canada.
This is an ancient pastime, as is evidenced by the fact that archeologists have uncovered material that places the domestication of pigeons in Egypt, at some 6000 years BC. It is a hobby that is, and has been enjoyed by people of all walks of life, including the “Royal Families of a number of countries, including England and Belgium” and famous movie stars from all areas of the world.
We feel a great sense of pride and accomplishment in seeing our association still alive and active after more than 115 years of existence. Please browse through our site, and as you learn a little about our favorite pastime and hobby, you may find yourself interested by what we have to offer, because there are some 768 different breeds of domesticated pigeons to tease your fancy.
