Legislation

Under Alberta's Health Professions Act and Naturopaths Profession Regulation, registration with the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta is mandatory if you meet identified competency requirements and provide professional services directly to the public, teach the practice of the profession to members or students of the profession, or supervise registered members or students who provide services to the public. Registered members who are authorized by the College may perform restricted activities specified in the Regulation. Only Regulated Members may call themselves naturopathic doctors, naturopathic practitioners, naturopaths or doctors of naturopathic medicine.

What You Need

Registration requires successful completion of: (1) an approved naturopathic program of studies and (2) approved examinations.  For official, detailed information about registration requirements, visit CNDA website or contact the CNDA. 

Working in Alberta

Naturopaths who are registered by and in good standing with a regulatory organization elsewhere in Canada may be eligible for registration in Alberta if registered naturopaths in two juridictions have similiar responsibilities and competencies.  For more information see" What if I am already certified in another province or territory?" and the Alberta regulatory authority (below).
