HOME >>ABOUT CSH
A brief history of the background leading to the formation of the Canadian Society of Homeopaths and the achievements of its Founding Board are contained in the 2006 Report from the Board of Directors.
The Purposes for which the Society was founded are:
a) To promote unity, co-ordination of activities, and sharing of resources within the homeopathic community through affiliations with regional associations and co-operation with other Canadian and international organizations.
b) To establish and maintain a registry of qualified homeopaths that upholds standards of professional excellence and a corresponding directory of registered members for public referral.
c) To advocate on behalf of our members and the homeopathic community, with the aim of promoting recognition of homeopathy as a viable health care option and assuring its accessibility to all Canadians.
d) To facilitate public awareness, education, and responsible use of homeopathy and to support comprehensive professional training in Canada.
e) To carry on any other business or activities which, in the opinion of the Directors of the Society, are conducive to the attainment of any of the purposes above.
An unalterable clause in the By-laws states that for the Purposes of the Society we accept the principles and practice of homeopathy as outlined in the Organon by Samuel Hahnemann.
The Canadian Society of Homeopaths is an independent professional organization committed to providing a strong united voice for the advancement, protection, and availability of homeopathy as a distinct system of medicine; to representing and supporting homeopaths who comply with high professional standards; and to encouraging and promoting public awareness and understanding of homeopathy across Canada.
