Historic Moment for ND's in Canada!

New B.C. Regulations Mark Historic Moment for Naturopathic Profession in Canada

Under regulations approved April 9th, 2009 by Health Minister George Abbott, Naturopathic Physicians in British Columbia become the first in Canada to be granted prescribing authority.

As CAND Chair, Dr. Jason Boxtart, ND stated upon hearing the news, "The face of Medicine in Canada has now changed."

This is such an exciting time for Naturopathic Doctors in Canada. 
Here's to hoping Ontario will follow suit!
