B.C. All Terrier Club was formed in 1965 by a group of Terrier fanciers. Their desire was to encourage and promote the various Terrier breeds, giving the public and Terrier breeders a better insight into the breeds. Through its members and the members of the Canadian Kennel Club, the B.C. All Terrier Club set their goals to include working towards the betterment of all dogs, and to assist and educate owners of terriers in the proper care and handling of such dogs. By involving themselves in breed shows, obedience trials, puppy matches and public functions, the members made it their mission to educate the public about the Terrier group while encouraging sportsmanship and fellowship in all matters pertaining to purebred Terriers.

From the BCATC Constitution:
“The purposes of the Society shall be:
a. To encourage the development and quality breeding of dogs of the Terrier Group.
b. To cooperate with the Canadian Kennel Club towards the betterment of all dogs and to assist and educate owners of Terriers in the proper care and handling of terrier dogs.
c. To hold Terrier Specialty shows, trials, performance events, puppy matches and futurity stakes either by itself or in conjunction with other clubs or societies and to abide by the principles of the Canadian Kennel Club Code of Ethics.
d. To encourage people to study breed standards and rules pertaining to shows, trials and related functions.
e. To foster and encourage sportsmanship and good fellowship in all matters pertaining to pure bred dogs.
f. To operate on a non-profit basis. Any resulting surplus funds shall not be used to the benefit of any member of the Society. The operations of the Society are to be carried out in the Province of British Columbia. The office of the Society shall be the address of the President or Secretary or a designated law office within the province. This provision is alterable.”
