  • To encourage members and breeders to accept the CKC Standard for the Breed as the only Standard of excellence by which Irish Setters shall be judged;

  • To promote and encourage the breeding of purebred Irish Setters and do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection;

  • To promote the breed by encouraging the organization of independent, local and regional Irish Setter, All-Setter, and Tri-Setter Clubs;

  • To promote, sponsor, and conduct specialty shows, field events, sanctioned matches, and other related events under the rules of the CKC, where appropriate;

  • To act as a national focus for all aspects of the encouragement and promotion of the Breed, between the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) and local and regional clubs; and to maintain contact with international clubs; and

  • To do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the Breed and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, field events and obedience tests.
