NS Chapter of CMAAC
(the Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture                                   Association of Canada)


The Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Canada (CMAAC) is a not-for-profit, professional association registered with the Federal Government. Its mandate is to set standards and educate practitioners and the public about acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

There are eight chapter offices across Canada along with chapters in Taiwan and Hong Kong. In 1987, CMAAC became a member society of the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) which is the only International organization recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).

In 2013 CMAAC celebrated its 30-year anniversary and the Nova Scotia and Maritime Chapters are proud to say that they have now been a part of CMAAC for 24 years.

The NS-CMAAC, with the support of CMAAC head office, has been working very hard to lobby the government for regulation and establish a higher standard for Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in Nova Scotia.

In the recent past years, the people and media of Nova Scotia have been more receptive to learning about acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine than ever before. The community is embracing alternative medicine; many are beginning to incorporate it into their overall approach to health and wellness.
