What is EDAC-ATAC?

EDAC-ATAC is a Canadian organization of professionals in the field of eating disorders and related areas, dedicated to serving the needs of those whose lives are impacted by eating disorders. Our national community is small, our geography huge. Membership to our growing organization provides numerous opportunities for communication and collaboration across our country.

The EDAC-ATAC Board of Directors would like to welcome new members and to thank renewing members for their support of EDAC-ATAC , each and every year. We encourage those involved in the care and research of eating disorders to stand up and be counted amongst peers from across Canada in strengthening this new and first ever Canadian association of eating disorder professionals.

EDAC-ATAC has completed its 12th year since incorporating in 2008. Joining EDAC-ATAC provides opportunities to connect with clinicians who share your interests and allows you to be a part of a growing organization dedicated to improving care for individuals with eating disorders across Canada.

Membership dues will help support the Board of Directors in working together to establish the groundwork for what we hope will be a vibrant and scholarly association. Our national community is small, our geography huge. EDAC-ATAC needs your help and hopes that you will also consider volunteering some time to help us develop. Let’s join together to make this happen!

EDAC-ATAC is registered as a not for profit organization in the Province of Ontario. Memberships are available for one and two calendar years, and run January-December.
