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.
