Name Proposed for New Multi-Profession College

December 4, 2023

On December 1, 2023, the Ministry of Health posted a regulation with its proposed name for the new multi-profession regulatory college that will be the result of amalgamating the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of BC, the College of Chiropractors of BC, the College of Massage Therapists of BC, and the College of Naturopathic Physicians of BC, effective June 28, 2024.

The name for the new college being proposed by the Ministry of Health is:

The College of Complementary Health Professionals of BC.

Those who are interested may submit feedback on the proposed name directly to the Ministry of Health until Friday, January 12, 2024 and via this email address: [email protected]. The Ministry of Health is, of course, ultimately responsible for the decision on our new college’s name.

As a reminder, the CTCMA is being directed by the Ministry of Health to amalgamate with the three other colleges. This amalgamation is part of the Ministry of Health’s multi-year initiative to modernize BC’s health profession regulatory framework. This initiative is informed by the Cayton Report and the 2020 recommendations of the Steering Committee on Modernization of Health Professional Regulation. More information about the government’s initiative to modernize the provincial health profession regulatory framework is available on the Ministry of Health’s Professional Regulation webpage.

Updates about the college amalgamation project are posted on our website.
