CA Identification Number

A CA Identification Number, commonly referred to as "CA Number", is a five-digit number preceeded by the letters CA issued by the Competition Bureau upon request.

Only Canadian manufacturers, processors or finishers of a textile fibre product or Canadians engaged in the business of importing or selling any textile fibre product are allowed to register for a CA Identification Number.

Such dealers are not required to have a CA Identification Number but they may use it in place of their name and address on the label of consumer textile articles.

Holders of CA Identification Numbers are responsible for the accuracy of the information in the database and for advising the Information Centre of the Competition Bureau, in writing, of any changes.
