About Us

Who We Are

The Alberta Herbalists Association (AHA)  held our first official Annual General Meeting on October 27th, 2016. A council of members worked deligently to organize the labour-intensive process of setting up a professional association to represent the interests of Albertan Herbalists from all cultures and educations.
The dream to create a registered, self-regulating organization dedicated
to the promotion and practice of herbalism was realized in the summer of 2017, when our organization officially became a society in Alberta.

The AHA’s main goals are to uphold high standards of education and practice of its members, and to unite and represent the herbalist community of Alberta.
