Exercise is Medicine Canada (EIMC)

Exercise is Medicine Canada (EIMC) is a CSEP initiative to promote physical activity, health promotion and wellness. EIMC is supported by an Advisory Council with representatives from the primary healthcare and exercise professional organizations. The Council meets annually to guide the strategic direction and activities of the EIMC program. A CSEP EIMC liaison committee supports the network of CSEP exercise professionals to build advocacy and implementation from the ground-up in professional and social communities across Canada.

We encourage you to join the Exercise is Medicine Canada (EIMC) Professional Network. The EIMC Professional Network brings together regulated health care professions and EIMC Recognized Exercise Professionals as part of the movement to change the way healthcare is delivered and chronic disease is prevented and managed in Canada. Together in this network, health care professionals and exercise professionals help their patients meet both physical activity and health goals related to chronic disease prevention, management and treatment. 

The goals of Exercise is Medicine Canada are to:

  1. Increase the number of health care professionals who are assessing, prescribing and counseling patients in physical activity
  2. Increase the number of Canadians meeting the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines and the Canadian Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines
  3. Encourage the appropriate use of qualified exercise professionals in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease
