Verification of Integrated Professionals

CHA has launched the vision of a future health system allowing practitioners to work with confidence in a new integrative health community. We aim to acknowledge all significant health and wellness groups by offering health certifications.

The Verification Program provides the opportunity for members to receive an Integrated Health designation based on their training, qualifications and areas of expertise.

Upon review and acceptance of their application, an annual certificate will be issued to the member as one of the following designations:

  • Integrative Health Coach
  • Integrative Health Counsellor
  • Integrative Health Consultant
