In Canada, we have Provincial and National Judges. Provincial Judges can judge provincial events as well as Equestrian Canada divisions up to and including Canter B. National Judges can judge Provincial events and all Equestrian Canada divisions.
The updating criteria for judges is found in the official program document here .
Please check the Upcoming Events for the dates and locations of future Judges Clinics.
The judging contract is for use by competition organizers and judges to standardize fees and process within the country. The latest version can always be found here on this page.

Thank you to Bretta DeLuca for putting together this excellent overview of what to expect at a vaulting competition!
When you want to enter an event like a CVI or world championships, the requirements are quite different than what you would expect at regular Canadian vaulting competitions. You will be entering on behalf of your country so this involves both Equine Canada and the International Equestrian Federation.
It is widely known that helmets should not be used when vaulting, but less widely understood why.
