The C.S.A.A.A. is actively involved in all federal legislation that could impact its membership's ability to carry out normal business operations and maintains a professional lobbyist. It was successful in delaying the U.N. marking system that would have cost the industry millions of dollars in increased costs and add more bureaucracy to a system already overloaded with bureaucratic hurdles. It has been active in its support of the new Outdoor Caucus in Ottawa and is a key adviser for this group on issues relating to our outdoor heritage. We also co-sponsor M.P. and M.P.P. events to express industry concerns. The C.S.A.A.A. has representation at the U.N. and maintains a close working relationship with The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI) in the U.S.
