Your 2019 Membership

The Canadian Sporting Arms and Ammunition Association (CSAAA) was founded in 1973 to represent and provide a voice for the shooting sports industry in Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial legislatures and to provide leadership for industry manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers.

As an industry association, we act as your watchdog, maintaining a professional lobbyist and full time managing director under the direction of a volunteer, membership-elected Board of Directors to engage in all levels of legislation that could impact our members’ ability to carry out normal, profitable business operations. We also join other consumer/user associations in promoting the value of hunting and shooting as heritage sports and in promoting the safe, responsible and ethical use of sporting arms in Canada.

Finally, we seek to facilitate the sharing of information among our members and our industry through coordinated communications and annual events including our CSAAA National Trade Show, Dealer Training Day, Canadian Reception at SHOT Show, and topic-specific summit meetings and educational seminars.

Your annual membership dues, which includes free admission to all CSAAA-organized events, makes the work of the association possible. It’s an investment in the protection and future of your business.


The CSAAA is very excited to be a group member partner of the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (CFIB). All eligible* CSAAA members will automatically receive a corporate membership in the CFIB. For more than 40 years, CFIB has been at the center of small business politics, effectively fighting for the rights of independent small business owners. CFIB represents more than 100,000 small business owners from coast-to-coast. *CFIB members must be independent, privately-owned businesses registered in Canada.

As an industry, our new partnership gives us access to additional lobbying power that ties the sporting arms industry to the larger small business community in Canada. We see huge benefits in engaging the full force of the small business community in the unique issues that affect our CSAAA business owners.

For business owners, you will have access to CFIB’s full range of benefits for a fraction of the cost of joining CFIB on your own, including:
