Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission

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 Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission was formed in 2015, combining the Maritime Harness Racing Commission with the Newfoundland & Labrador commission. Previously, the Maritime Harness Racing Commission, formed in 1994, included the harness racing commissions of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.

There are nine racetracks under the jurisdiction of the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission and the Commission governs, regulates, and supervises harness racing in all of its forms relevant and related to pari-mutuel betting.

Our office is located in Kensington, Prince Edward Island.
