The national voice of traditional Chinese medicine education in Canada


Founded in 2008, the Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine Colleges of Canada (FTCMCC) represents members of FTCMCC across Canada, and is the national voice of traditional Chinese medicine education in this country.

September 28, 2008, in BC Children’s Hospital, Vancouver, 8 presidents and educators of Colleges of Traditional Chinese Medicine across Canada, gathered together, to discuss the desire and the opportunity to create a platform to promote professionalism, standardization, and high quality education.
