Ottawa, ON, September 3, 2015 – It is the right of every member of Equine Canada (EC) to propose amendments to the rules, subject to the current policies, procedures and schedules.

Earlier this year EC members were invited to submit suggestions for 2016 Equine Canada rule changes. These were reviewed by the respective rules committees. The 2016 Rule Change Proposals (RCPs) are now posted for public comment.

RCPs will be posted on the Equine Canada website beginning September 1st to allow for a 30-day member review.  During this time members are encouraged to read the proposals and offer comment. The deadline for member comments is September 30.

The National Rules Committee and the respective discipline rules committees will consider pertinent public comments and modify/correct/withdraw any RCPs requiring attention prior to October 15.

Finalized rule changes will be posted on the EC website by December 1, to be effective January 1, 2016.
