Where Canada's
Innovative Doctors Meet

Canadian Integrative Medicine Association

Integrative Medicine is a whole-person, patient-centered medical practice using therapies that are both evidence- and experience-based from a variety of medical disciplines including conventional Western medical therapies. These practices are combined to provide the highest level of safe, effective healthcare for our patients.
