The first national Homeopathy
Awareness Week in Canada was sponsored in 2004 by the West
Coast Homeopathic Society (WCHS). Its aim was to raise public awareness of the
benefits of homeopathy and to advance recognition of the homeopathic profession. The
following year, WCHS joined the newly-formed World Homeopathy Awareness
Committee (now World Homeopathy Awareness
Organization) to hold a week-long international
celebration of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Samuel Hahnemann.
In 2006, the Canadian Society of Homeopaths took over responsibility for the
organization and promotion of Homeopathy Awareness as part of the transition
from WCHS. Again, our awareness activities in Canada were co-ordinated
with those of WHAO, which later awarded CSH their First
Prize for greatest awareness promotion for that year.
By 2008, our Homeopathy Awareness celebrations in Canada had expanded to include the
whole month of April and, starting in 2009, CSH officially began celebrating Homeopathy
Awareness Month. No longer limited to just the week starting April 10 (marking the
birth of Samuel Hahnemann in 1755), our members could focus their homeopathic events
and promotions over the full month of April. Then in more recent
years, our members began to spread their awareness activities over the
