    Canada's Only Purebred Feline Registry

    In 1960, a small group of Canadians gathered to explore the possibility of forming a Canadian registry for purebred felines. Before this event, all registrations had to be filed in the United States or Europe and all cat shows held in Canada were held under the rules of American associations.

    The intent of the founding members is expressed in the Letters Patent of the Association: To promote the welfare of all the cats in Canada, to further the improvement of all breeds of cats in Canada and to maintain a registry of purebred cats.

    flowericongrey Fédération Internationale Féline - a leading international cat fancier society - (or FIFe) is a federation of cat registries. There are currently thirty-nine member organizations in thirty-seven countries. Membership spans Europe, South America, and Asia.

    Founded by Madame Marguerite Ravel, the federation was unofficially started in 1949 in Paris, France. At their first General Assembly in Gent, Belgium, the federation was officially founded. The original name was Fédération Internationale Féline d'Europe or FIFE.

    In 1972 the Brazilian Cat Club joined, making it necessary to change the Euro-centric name of the federation. The "d'Europe" was dropped, and the abbreviation was changed to FIFe.
