On September 11, 2015 the College successfully obtained a permanent injunction pursuant to section 87 of the Health Professions Procedural Code the Court prohibiting Ms. Sherry X. Yin (a.k.a. Xueping Yin) (“Ms. Yin”) from contravening the Regulated Health Professions Act and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Act.
Ms. Yin is not a registered member of the College.
The Honourable Mr. Justice Mew found that Ms. Yin had violated the Regulated Health Professions Act and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Act, 2006. Ms. Yin is prohibited from engaging in controlled acts reserved for members of the College including performing acupuncture and communicating a traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis. The decision further prohibits Ms. Yin from holding herself out as a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner or acupuncturist, or from using the title “Doctor”.
The Court also provisionally ordered Ms. Yin to pay $30,000 in costs to the College.
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.
