The Canadian Federation of Osteopaths represents six provincial associations across Canada which are in the process of establishing the manual practice of osteopathy as a regulated profession, on behalf of their members, who are educated in the manual practice of osteopathy.

In Canada, the non-physician practice of osteopathy is practiced in almost all of the provinces. For more information, and to verify the membership of each provincial association, please access the provincial association websites below.

The title “Osteopath” is protected and controlled, in some provinces, by the respective medical regulatory college for physicians and surgeons. U.S. trained osteopathic physicians are not affiliated with the Canadian Federation of Osteopaths. There are no osteopathic medical colleges in Canada.
