The article reports on the recognition given to tradition Chinese medicine and acupuncture recognized as a health profession under new legislation in Ontario. The legislation allows practitioners of the ancient holistic therapy operate under their own regulatory college and potentially earn the right to use the appellation "doctor." Bill 50 paved the way for the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario.
