What is LMAC?

Livestock Markets Association of Canada (LMAC) was formed in 1964 for the stated purpose of promoting the selling of livestock by public auction and to be a united voice to the Federal and Provincial Governments on issues affecting Auction Markets in Canada.

Auction Markets and Order Buyers who become members of their Provincial Markets Association automatically become members of LMAC.

LMAC is led by a Board of Directors. Five Directors are elected by the Provincial Association (usually these directors are the Provincial Presidents or their designates). Five Directors are elected at large by the LMAC membership at the annual meeting.

LMAC promotes the Auction method of selling and hosts the annual Canadian Auctioneer Championship to encourage Auctioneers to improve and showcase their skill.
