The Association of Osteopaths of New Brunswick (AONB) is an active member association of the Canadian Federation of Osteopaths (CFO), which is also a partner of the Osteopathic International Alliance (OIA). AONB’s mission is to advance and protect the philosophy, practice of osteopathy in New Brunswick, and by doing so we collaborate with international associations in the world.
