Canada

In Canada there are various institutions offering T/CM courses but there is no universal system or standardization. Training programs are provided mostly by private institutes, universities and community colleges independently. There also is a component of T/CM training in allopathic courses but mostly as very short lectures (1).

 

Because of this lack of a regulatory system, accreditation is largely either done by T/CM associations or the respective institutions based on their own criteria and standards.
