On December 1, 2023, the Ministry of Health posted proposed amendments to the regulations of four colleges to reflect the proposed name for the new multi-profession regulatory college that will be the result of amalgamating the College of Chiropractors of BC, College of Massage Therapists of BC, College of Naturopathic Physicians of BC, and College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of BC effective June 28, 2024. (See this link for proposed amendments to “Chiropractors Regulation.”)
The name for the new college being proposed by the Ministry of Health is: The College of Complementary Health Professionals of BC.
If you choose to, you can submit feedback on the proposed name directly to the Ministry of Health until January 12, 2024, by emailing: PROREGADMIN@gov.bc.ca
The Ministry of Health is responsible for the decision on the college’s name.
As a reminder, the College of Chiropractors of BC 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.
