What province is this please?

Are you licenced in your areas of practice or are these areas yet to be regulated?

Will all staff be licenced or certified?

I am not sure what's happened exactly but I just sent you some questions and was waiting for the answers but you seem to have accepted in advance.

This ended the chat but that's OK as we can post up and back.

Can you answer my questions so I can begin to get you an answer please?

I have done some research on your question. I am not a local lawyer and unfortunately there are no local lawyers on this site.

As far as I can see you are not regulated at this point though I believe that there is hope amongst practitioners in this area that you will be regulated and then licenced sometime in the not so distant future.

For this reason so long as you don't hold yourself out as a doctor or any other regulated industry there's not likely any reason why you cannot open up a centre and call it a clinic so long as you are clear about what you do and are not misleading.

But to be sure I would suggest you do two things.

I would call the NS Association of Acupuncturists and confirm this information. Here's a link to their website:

http://www.nsacupuncture.ca/index.php


And, I would suggest going for a free consultation with a local lawyer.

You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.

I hope that helps as a starting point.
