The Official website of the Canadian Coton de Tulear Club


The Canadian Coton de Tulear Club (CCTC) is a Canadian non-profit organization created for breed fanciers to share their mutual interest.

It was founded in 1993 by Monique and Denis Carriere of Ottawa, Ontario. The Canadian Kennel Club officially accredited the CCTC as the National Parent Breed Club in 1994. Shortly thereafter, the official Club newsletter, the Coton Malgache was created and has been published quarterly ever since.

The administrative operations of the Club are managed by a seven member Board of Directors as well as a Newsletter/Membership Chairperson. The members of the club elect the Board bi-annually.

All work is volunteer, and revenues are generated solely by membership dues and advertising fees. All members vow to abide by a Code of Ethics which governs the breeding of the Coton and aims to protect and preserve the breed and strive for its betterment.

The club’s objective is to support, educate and advise owners/members and prospective owners about the Coton de Tulear, and to preserve the qualities of the breed.

The club also hosts a national Breed Specialty dog show which is held annually.
