We are an Agency of the Council of Atlantic Premiers responsible for governing, regulating and supervising harness racing in all its forms relevant and related to pari-mutuel betting in the Atlantic Provinces.

The Maritime Commission replaced the three Provincial Commissions in 1994. The Provincial Government of Newfoundland introduced legislation governing harness racing in Newfoundland and Labrador and, on October 9, 2015, joined the Maritime Provinces thus renaming the Commission to the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission.

Our office is located in Kensington, Prince Edward Island.
