About US

Background

The Agility Association of Canada (AAC), to which we belong, was founded in 1988 to promote the application of uniform and safe standards in the practice of agility as a sport in Canada. The main elements of the sport are good sportsmanship and fun for the dogs and handler. The AAC gave itself the mandate of promoting agility trials at the local, regional, national, and international levels for all dogs and their handler, regardless of the dog’s origins.


The Club d’agilité de Montréal is a non-profit organisation founded in January 2002.
The Club started its activities in 2003 and held its first trial on the field adjacent to the Mondou store in Anjou; our equipment consisted of one full set of obstacles.
Following two relocations (in 2008 and 2015), we now have three full sets of obstacles and two outdoor fields, entirely fenced, ready to welcome you.
Since its creation, the Club has hosted two National Championships (in 2004 and 2016), one Regional Championship (in 2012) and nearly one hundred local trials.

Since 2013, our Club hosts the largest indoor agility trials in the province. These trials, which have become a tradition in the agility world, are held at the very beginning of January and attract agility teams from all over Quebec, Ontario and even the Atlantic Provinces.

Since our beginning, we have benefited from the cooperation of J.E. Mondou as major sponsor and since 2015, we are the only agility Club recognized by the City of Montreal and set up in a public park belonging to the City.

Becoming a Member

The Club d’agilité de Montréal (CAMtl) offers the possibility of becoming a member as soon as the dog is able to demonstrate the seventeen (17) skills described in the “Skills developed in the introductory courses”.

In due course, your instructor will refer you to an evaluation in order to move up from introductory courses to club courses. This evaluation is mandatory in order to become a member of the Club d’agilité de Montréal. Your team will be evaluated by a different instructor than the one(s) for your introductory courses.

The advantages of being a member:

  • Participate at no extra cost to the weekly courses referred to as “Club Courses”, from May to September, according to the development themes announced at the beginning of the season (with possible exceptions in some cases);
  • Possibility of practicing at the club with all the equipment 7 days a week, from May to October (except during classes and trials);
  • Take advantage of reduced rates for introductory courses for a second dog
