The Alberta Kinesiology Association: Pioneering Kinesiology Growth in Alberta

Kinesiology is an ever-evolving field that delves into the intricacies of human movement and physical activity. Kinesiologists work across diverse settings like healthcare, fitness, sports, and research to promote physical activity, avert injuries, and enhance overall health and wellness. In Alberta, the Alberta Kinesiology Association (AKA) takes the lead in advancing kinesiology and supporting kinesiologists in their endeavors.


Established in 1995, the AKA is a professional association representing kinesiologists in Alberta. Its mission encompasses promoting and advancing the science and practice of kinesiology in the province through advocacy, education, and networking. Today, the AKA has grown to over 800 members, including practicing kinesiologists, students, and educators.


A primary role of the AKA is advocating for the recognition and regulation of kinesiology in Alberta. Collaborating with the government and other stakeholders, the association strives to ensure kinesiology is acknowledged as a distinct profession, and practicing kinesiologists adhere to high practice standards. Consequently, the Alberta government is inching closer to recognizing kinesiology as a designated health profession in the province.


Furthermore, the AKA offers a plethora of educational opportunities for its members. Hosting an annual conference, members can gain insights into the latest research and best practices in kinesiology. The AKA also provides professional development workshops, webinars, and networking events for members to connect, exchange ideas, and share experiences.


If you are a practicing kinesiologist, a student, or an educator in Alberta, consider joining the AKA today to access its many benefits and contribute to the growth and development of the field of kinesiology in Alberta.
