The British Columbia Rodeo Association (BCRA) was formed in 1988 and became the primary governing body of rodeo in British Columbia when, the Interior Rodeo Association, Yellowhead Cowboys Association and the Vancouver Island Rodeo Association amalgamated. This amalgamation created a strong organization, combining decades of rodeo experience from all corners of the province. Over 500 members compete annually at rodeos throughout the Province of British Columbia. Our co-approving Associations include the PWRA, NPRA and WIREA. The BCRA office is located at Cache Creek in central British Columbia.
The BCRA is a non-profit amateur/semi-pro association that operates under the guiding principles of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association. The BCRA is governed by the Constitution, By-Laws, Rules and Regulations of the BCRA and managed by a hardworking volunteer Board of Directors that is voted by the membership each fall during the Annual General Meeting. All terms are for two years, with overlapping terms to ensure continuity of the organization. The Officers (President, Vice-President) are elected by and from the Board of Directors and Event Representatives and other key positions are appointed by the BOD.
