Since 1955, Miss Rodeo Canada has proudly represented the sport of rodeo across the country and around the world as an official ambassador to our heritage and western way of life. She attends hundreds of events each year across Canada, the United States and Australia representing the various sponsors that support her.



There are many benefits in having a national title holder such as Miss Rodeo Canada at your event! Not only can she ride, but she can mingle with dignitaries and fans, take part in your parade,  sign autographs, visit sponsors, attend schools, hospitals, senior homes, assist with your local pageant and more.



Each participant has the opportunity to garner one of the richest experiences of her life while creating a solid foundation for her future. Lifelong friendships are made and many doors are opened to all. During the week of the competition, participants are judged in categories including: Horsemanship, Public Speaking, Personal Interview, Written Exam, Modelling, and Overall Personality.

the ranch, and barrel racing. While she didn’t inherit this lifestyle, Alicia chose to
live by it and will continue to do so by being a contributing member to the sport of
