Acupuncture and Law

  • In Quebec, the Office des professions has recognized the efficiency and credibility of traditional Chinese medicine. In 1994, the National Assembly adopted a bill which eventually led to the creation of the Ordre des acupuncteurs du Québec (OAQ) on July 1st 1995. This bill aimed to protect the public by implementing certain conditions to becoming an acupuncturist.
  • In the same way than doctors, lawyers, nurses and architects, the name of the profession is protected. Only acupuncturists can practice this medicine (and there is a clear line between being and acupuncturist and claiming to be one). One needs to undergo the training recognized by the OAQ, a technical college grade in acupuncture at Collège de Rosemont http://acupuncture.crosemont.qc.ca/ and to meet the OAQ’s standards in terms of continued education.
