Do I need to be licensed to practice Western Herbal Medicine?

In Canada there is currently no regulation and thus no herbalist certification that is required for someone to practice Western Herbal Medicine. Various credentialing bodies do exist and graduates of PRC’s Diploma of Phytotherapy are eligible for membership into the Canadian Herbalist’s Association of British Columbia (CHA of BC), the American Herbalists Guild (AHG), and the Ontario Herbalist Association (OHA).
