The Canadian Cowboys Association’s goal is to promote the sport of rodeo to new members, the public and the sports media. The CCA has been a major stepping stone for the careers of many professional rodeo champions and contestants attending the Canadian Finals Rodeo and National Finals Rodeo. The careers of Cody Snyder and Todd Boggust began in the Canadian Cowboys Association as were many others. The CCA hopes to continue to offer the next generation of rodeo competitors a place to compete, preparing them for the road to the professional arena.
Rodeos sanctioned by the Canadian Cowboys Association are comprised of seven major events, and four optional novice and junior events.
The seven major CCA rodeo events are: Saddle Bronc Riding; Bareback Riding; Bull Riding; Tie Down Roping; Steer Wrestling; Ladies Barrel Racing; and Team Roping.
The four optional rodeo events that round out the CCA offering are: Junior Bull Riding; Junior Girls Barrel Racing; Novice Saddle Bronc; and Novice Bareback.
With 10 issues annually, the Canadian Cowboys Association publishes a rodeo newspaper, Rodeo News. The Rodeo News keeps the Canadian Cowboys Association members, sponsors and the general public informed of all the events and issues that are CCA related.
