An open letter to CMAAC Members & TCM Community
Since the establishment of CMAAC in 1983, we have maintained our purpose of serving our members , TCM community and general public at large: helping initiate the development of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture profession; upholding and protecting the duty and right of the TCM practitioners; uniting the TCM community and helping advance the modernization of the knowledge and technology; and to constantly educate on the matter of public health to all Canadians. Our organization will keep running and scheduling seminars regularly to strive for the support of Canadian and Chinese communities and the regulation of the practice of TCM and Acupuncture. We made contact with and liaise various levels of Government officials in assisting to arrange forums and seminars for our members and the public. We also negotiate with the insurance providers in the extended-healthcare insurance claim matters. With the help and support of our members, we walked through hand in hand for 30 years on a rough and bumpy path. In Ontario and Newfoundland & Labrador, the profession of TCM/ Acupuncture is now regulated, most practitioners in the TCM community are either grandparented or registered in the general class to practice in the provinces. We sincerely offer our cordial greetings on your success and wish you all in your advancement of your profession to a higher level, and to make a contribution to the healthcare service for the Canadians. In the new era, we are going to promote the regulation drive in other provinces that the profession yet to be regulated. Till then, a new task is waiting for us all, it is our duty to protect the members’ right: to ensure a fair and balanced policy is implemented on both registered and yet to be registered members of the College. We will keep track on the Parties’ support, to race against time to strive for the Doctor’s title and preserve the use of Chinese language within the profession. As you all know CMAAC is a non-profit organization which relies heavily on its volunteers (chapter presidents, members, and all other contributors of TCM and Acupuncture) and their sacrifices of time and effort to further the causes and missions of CMAAC. CMAAC is proud of the efforts to obtain Regulation in many provinces, most recently Ontario, but assures members they continue to push forward and strive for regulation across Canada. CMAAC hopes that members and chapter
presidents continue to be united together to help further the goals and to preserve their faith and hope. CMAAC would like to thank everyone for their efforts and sacrifices and we invite you all to work together for a better and brighter future.
Dear Colleagues, Our Vice-President (External), Dr. Susan Makray-Corey, passed away on April 10, 2013 In Loving Memory of Our Former VPExternal, Dr. Susan Makray ‘Her beautiful soul went to be with the Lord, peacefully at home in Innisfil in her 50th year on April 10, 2013.’ Dr. Susan Makray, had been a member of the CMAAC since 1985 and Vice-President (External) of CMAAC since 2008. Her dedication in promoting TCM/A in Ontario was evident with her natural abilities in reaching out to the TCM/A community with CMAAC and other Associations in Ontario and across Canada. Before she passed away, she has been working hard with other Associations in Canada for the HST-exemption from acupuncture services. In addition, she has represented CMAAC and Canada as one of the delegates for the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) Conferences. As a TCM practitioner, she has helped many people (notably with World Class Figure Skaters and accompanying them to World Championships and the Olympics) in her successful practice in Barrie and north of Toronto. She has set example for the TCM/A community with her passion for TCM/A and what she believes TCM/A can offer to the public. Though we know Dr. Makray can offer so much still for the future of TCM/A in Canada and the people she could have helped, we will, most of all, miss her laughs and her smiles – she had such a way of bringing people together, regardless of race and culture. We shall always treasure the memories we had with Dr. Makray. A tree will be planted in memory of Dr. Susan Makray in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. A dedication service will be held on Sunday, September 8th, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. 亲爱的會員们,我们的外交部副會長， DR.Susan Makary Corey 于2013年4月10日逝世日在家里平静地去逝，享年 50。” DR.Susan Markary是加拿大醫學藥針灸學會自1985成 為會員）。 從2008年以來Susan一直擔任加拿大中醫學針灸 學會 外交部副會長一職。她一直致力推動傳統中醫藥針 灸， 貢獻良多。在她去世以前， 她一直和其他中醫界， 為 豁免稅而努力爭取。此外，Susan曾代表加拿大中醫學藥針 灸學會出席世界針灸學術會議（WFAS）。作為一個傳統的 中醫師， 她幫助了許多在巴厘和多倫多北部的民眾，（特 別是她也是世界級的花樣溜冰選手的針灸師，陪同去參加世 界錦標賽和奧林匹克運動會）。Susan她為傳統的中醫藥針

遵敬的缅省會員: 近期有些会员打电话说听到消息 CMAAC 总会被取消，缅省 也没有协会了，这纯属谣传，CMAAC 是加拿大一个非常强 大有影响力的学会，会员被多家保险公司认可，并且还在跟 有一些现在未报销的公司进行交涉，下一步可能有更多的保 险公司会给予报销，MB 分会也在总会的支持与帮助下稳步 的发展，于 2oo3 年缅省成立中华中医药针灸协会以便给政 府交涉立法及免税等问题，虽然缅省己成立中医针灸协会十 年，每一位缅省 CMAAC 会员自动加入缅省中医针灸协会， 但缅省中医针灸协会未再加收任何费用，另外我们对入会会 员要求也比较高，其一可以保证我们会员的素质和质量，其 二能保护我们现有会员的权益，希望大家團結一致為中醫專 業及立法而奮鬥。
