Osteopathy Regulation in Canada

The word "osteopathy" is not regulated in any of provinces in Canada. The word "osteopath" is regulated. That is why our graduates are permitted to use the word "osteopathy" in their clinic names or call what they do "osteopathy". The term "osteopath" is regulated in Ontario and some provinces but not all.

In Quebec and some other provinces our graduates can call themselves "osteopath". In provinces where the term "osteopath" is regulated our graduates call themselves manual osteopaths or osteopathic manual practitioners.

Dream Big, Take Action

Dream Big, Take Action

I have chosen “Dream Big, Take Action” as the motto for the Pourgol Family Coat of Arms because it signifies my life philosophy and the reason for my success.

When I started National Academy of Osteopathy, I dreamed big. I set a goal of teaching in 100 cities across the world. Now we teach osteopathy in 68 countries (well over 100 cities worldwide). While “dreaming big” gives me the motivation and energy to persevere “taking action” is the part that makes my big dreams come true.

I teach my students everything I know about business because I want them to achieve financial success. You can also achieve your goals if you take action and do three things daily that bring you closer to your goals.
