CMAAC, the Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Association of Canada
is a non-profit, charitable organisation registered with the Federal Government. From its inception in 1983, its mandate has been to lobby for regulation of TCM and Acupuncture for the best interests of the public and to protect the high repute of the TCM community. There are eight chapter offices across Canada. In 1987, CMAAC became a member society of the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) which is the only international acupuncture organisation recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO).

In 1987, CMAAC became a member of the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS), an international organisation recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO).
