Northern Indian Medical and Dental Association of Canada was the brain child of some of its members who met for the first time in the year 1987-88. This was rather a social gathering at one of the founding member’s home. It was an unofficial and informal organization. The members used to meet at their homes and organize social and educational events regularly.
The organization was officially registered in the year 1993. Dr. A. S. Cheema was the first elected president in the year 1993. The quarterly publication of the newsletter was started by Dr. R. Jaidka in the year 1998. The organization had its own email address in the year 1999. Starting May 15, 2000 NIMDAC was on the cyberspace.
