Welcome to Kinesiology

in Nova Scotia

The Kinesiology Association of Nova Scotia (KANS) was originally founded in 1997 with a vision to bring Kinesiologists together to work towards regulating and legislating the Kinesiology profession in Nova Scotia. The vision and name have been proudly reinstated as of November 2018, and we now have the full support of our National body - the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance - to help ensure our ongoing success. We are one of 9 affiliated provinces across Canada working together to legislate our profession and to establish a regulated practice Nation-wide. The KANS board members consist of both students and working professionals, and we are continuously expanding our network.



KANS is ...

The KANS is a non-profit organisation with a philosophy and a mission that is govern by a Board of Director duly elected at the Annual General Meeting.
