Who we are

The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition is a  collective of people, and national groups, who have joined forces in order to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption in Canada.   As well, the CHDC is lobbying to ban the inhumane transport and export of live horses to other countries for the same purpose.

Nous sommes un collectif de personnes et de groupes nationaux qui ont unis leurs forces afin d’obtenir l’interdiction au Canada de l’abattage des équidés destinés à la consommation humaine, ainsi que de l’exportation de chevaux vivants vers d’autres pays à des fins d’abattage.

Our Patron

"I’ll be in touch tomorrow to donate to this important cause. How cruel and unnecessary Horse slaughter is. Modern society was built on the back of the working horse - and this is how we repay them. Classy."

"Canada should be leading the world when it comes to animal welfare— and yet we drop the ball in so many ways. We ship thousands upon thousands of live horses for the overseas meat trade and grotesquely fail with their treatment. Often in tight cages of three or four - for days."

"This is an amazing, important organization... donate if you can. Even a toonie makes a difference."
