The Western Canadian Farriers Association is a non-profit association, formed in 1983. Our main purpose is "to organize farriers for the promotion of excellence in the art and science of farriery". A constitution and by-laws govern the WCFA. Membership is on a yearly basis. The WCFA is not only an association concerned with farriers, but with everyone in the horse industry, aiming to inform the public, and particularly the horse owner, of the quality and standard of farrier service that is available.
