What is our History?

The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA) Steering Committee was formed in 1995. 

Today, CKA / ACK continues to support PKAs in their effort to become legislated but can only act as a hub of information for the PKAs and continue to increase awareness of the kinesiology profession, create more partnerships and links with other National Health Professions, and encourage the public to request kinesiology services. By 2022, the public will recognize the profession in stride with other entities.

What do we advocate for ?

As the national voice for kinesiology and kinesiologists in Canada the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance-Alliance Canadienne de kinesiologie actively engages government, principally at the federal level.
