This academic conference and summit forum will bring together heavyweights in the academic circles of Canada and China. Professor/President Guo Hongwei will lead the clinical and teaching elites of Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine to teach the clinical treatment experience of dominant diseases of TCM while experts and scholars from various provinces in Canada share their many years of overseas experience in TCM and acupuncture. This is a rare international academic feast of TCM and Acupuncture!

During the academic conference, the award ceremony for the inaugural “Zhang Jin International Contribution Award for the Development of TCM Acupuncture” will be held. This ceremony aims to honor and recognize experts, scholars, and outstanding individuals who have made significant achievements and contributions to the field of international TCM and acupuncture, particularly in promoting its development.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine; during the academic conference, the Canadian Alumni Association of Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine joined hands with the British Alumni Association, the Hungarian Alumni Association, and the American Alumni Association to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the university's establishment.

Due to the approval of the Markham City Council in Ontario, the last week of August (25-31) will be designated as the City of Markham's "Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Week"; later in the academic conference, we will promote TCM and Acupuncture and conduct free clinics for citizens.

Here, we would like to express our gratitude to the educators and scholars of TCM who have traveled from afar to attend this conference, as well as to the participants and supporters of the previous ten academic conferences held in 2009, 2011, and 2016 to 2023 from various provinces of Canada and around the world. Thank you all!

We sincerely invite domestic and overseas Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, acupuncturists, researchers from various Chinese medicine universities, and leaders of major pharmaceutical companies and medical equipment companies to participate in this conference.

Thank you very much for your support. We look forward to all of our fellow experts and friends exchanging knowledge with each other.

In August, Toronto is characterized by gentle breezes and stunning views of the colourful Lake Ontario, while the awe-inspiring natural wonder of Niagara Falls leaves visitors with unforgettable memories. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners of Toronto welcome guests from all over the world with open arms.

Finally, I wish for the conference to be a complete success!
