WHAT IS OUR HISTORY?


The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA) Steering Committee was formed in 1995. Over the following six years, this group, dedicated to advancing the professions of kinesiology in Canada, gained support from other key stakeholders including the handful of provincial associations already established. The CKA/ ACK was federally incorporated in 2001 as a not-for-profit corporation. Today, on a national level, the CKA / ACK represents nine (9) provincial kinesiology associations (PKAs) that are member associations and over 4,000 affiliated Kinesiologists by developing progressive partnerships with other national organizations
