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. The meeting considered the establishment of recognized standards imminent in current education system. The discussion led to the instituting of the Federation of Colleges of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Canada. Although the FTCMCC focused on training Acupuncturists, TCM practitioners and TCM doctors, but may also play the role of bridging differences between Canada and China in the field of traditional Chinese medicine education.
