College Role

The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO) governs the practice of traditional Chinese Medicine in Ontario in the public interest.

The role, as that of all other health regulatory colleges of Ontario, is defined in the Health Professions Procedural Code, Schedule 2 of the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991.

The College’s primary duty is to serve and protect the public interest by:

  1. Regulating the practice and conduct of members by setting regulations, standards, policies and guidelines;
  2. Maintaining a public register of members, ensuring that only qualified professionals meeting entry to practice requirements can practice or use the protected titles: “traditional Chinese medicine practitioner” or “acupuncturist”, a variation or abbreviation or an equivalent in another language;
  3. Developing programs to help members improve their skills, knowledge and judgment;
  4. Reviewing and investigating complaints against members;
  5. Assessing whether a member is fit to practice;
  6. Disciplining members, where necessary;
  7. Promoting inter-professional collaboration; and
  8. Offering practise guidance and support to members and assisting public with information about the profession and its members.

The College is NOT an educational institution and it DOES NOT advocate for the profession.
