On June 22, 2015, the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (the “College”) obtained an interlocutory Order from The Honourable Mr. Justice Hood of the Superior Court of Justice pursuant to section 87 of the Health Professions Procedural Code prohibiting Ms. Sherry Yin a.k.a. Ms. Xueping Yin (“Ms. Yin”) from contravening the Regulated Health Professions Act and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Act until the final adjudication of the Application brought by the College which is scheduled for August 5, 2015.
Ms. Yin is not a registered member of the College.
The Order prohibits Ms. Yin on interlocutory basis from engaging in controlled acts reserved for members of the College including performing acupuncture and communicating a traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis.
The Order further prohibits Ms. Yin on an interlocutory basis from holding herself out as a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner or acupuncturist.
This Order demonstrates the College’s ongoing commitment to the regulation of the profession in the public interest. Ensuring only registered members of the College are performing regulated acts on the public is an important component of the College’s public safety mandate.
