The entitlement of the naturopath's title;

The title of Naturopath is a label of competence, a reference, following what the naturopathe will be registered in the directory of the Canadian Union of Professional Naturopaths.

He may also be able to present himself at the General meeting if he wishes to become a member of the Board of directors of the Canadian Union of Professional Naturopaths.

The Commission of naturopaths;

The commission meets to receive the candidates whom are entitled to recieve the title of Naturopath with at least five members, except with the exemption of a vote by the A.C. Punctually, any member of the board can sit at this commission.

(CCNE) meets once a month to receive the candidates whose file of request for establishment of the naturopath title is complete, i.e. presents all written information answering the requested criteria and information.

The discussion with the candidate lasts thirty minutes, the following which the Members of the Commission of naturopaths vote (they cannot abstain from), in favour of the establishment of the naturopath's title or the adjournment.

The decision is ratified by the board, starting from the report/ratio which is submitted to him by other naturopath members of the (CCNE) present during the interview of the candidate.

In the case of an adjournment, the candidate is invited by mail to deepen such or such insufficient criterion. The preliminary study of the file generally avoids the convocation of a candidate who would not present any qualification at the trade of naturopathe.

The more so as during adhesion to the Trade union, three possibilities are proposed which distinguish the people being able to claim with the establishment of those which do not enter the criteria: associate members (it acts people exerting another trade but wishing to receive the information disseminated by the trade union of the naturopathes), them members studying (the student registered in a recognized educational establishment), and the adherent members (who are already naturopathe, even beginners).

Canadian Council of Naturopathic Examiners (CCNE)

In addition to the reception of the candidates, it (CCNE) worked more specifically on the manner of evaluating the qualities awaited at the applicant with establishment.


Thus for each principal criterion:
    - formation.
    - the professional experience.
    - the supervision.
we sought to distinguish the observable indices from the measurable and quantifiable indices of a naturopath.
