AVAC is the Association of Veterinary Acupuncturists of Canada. We are the Canadian national affiliate of the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.
AVAC‘s goal is to establish communication between Canadian veterinary practitioners interested in veterinary acupuncture. We are a non-profit organization, a group of veterinarians with a mission to advance the science and art of Veterinary Acupuncture. We encourage scientific investigation and research into the philosophy, technique and practice of veterinary acupuncture. To this end we organize seminars, basic and advanced courses, and other forms of meetings, for education and training in veterinary acupuncture.
By joining A.V.A.C. you receive a joint AVAC & IVAS (International Veterinary Acupuncture Society) membership. If you register through the IVAS office you will receive IVAS membership only. The cost is the same regardless of which office you register through. Be a part of your national veterinary acupuncture association and receive all the benefits of both groups.
Your dues will cover your membership for A.V.A.C. and IVAS through June 30th, 2021.
Each region in Canada has a representative that you can talk to if you have questions about AVAC meetings, CE or the organization. These members are listed in the newsletter along with their contact information.
If you are interested, please fill in our membership application form attached; and we will be sending your information and payment to IVAS.
If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
