Canadians who served in the military during the Second World War met likeminded souls from across the country, and often seen clubs while in Europe. They were a ready pool of recruits for post war coordinators.

Several disagreements between eastern and western members of the CSA resulted in the break up of CSA into the Western Canadian Sunbathing Association (WCSA) and the Eastern Canadian Sunbathing Association (ECSA) in 1960. The ECSA put much in fighting over the next decade and a half, leading to its official death in 1978. The WCSA continues today as the American Association for Nude Recreation -- Western Canadian Region (www.aanr-wc.com), a region of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) which itself was once referred to as the ASA.[15]

Naturism in Asia

Overall, public nudity in Asia is not tolerated although some traditional, ethnic or religious nudity has endured the launch of Western moral values against nudity, including the Jain Digambara monks in India, hot springs in Taiwan and Japan and some conventional tribes in Papua. Nudism and naked recreation is slowly growing in some nations, primarily Indonesia (Bali) and Thailand. Nudists meet on the web (e.g. Bareskinasia.com) and organize tasks in remote or private places.
