Education & Certification
Naturopathic Medicine is licensed under provincial law in Ontario, and is regulated by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).
Registered Naturopathic Doctors must first complete a minimum of three years of pre-medical training at a recognized university. They then enter the Naturopathic Doctor Diploma program, a full-time four year program at an accredited Naturopathic College, which includes a year long clinical internship.
At the present time there are only two such schools in Canada: The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, and the Bouchier Institute in Vancouver. After successfully completing the ND program, they must pass both North American and provincial board-licensing exams.
All NDs are required to carry malpractice insurance. Other holistic practitioners may not be trained, regulated or insured, and we encourage you to investigate this before choosing a practitioner.
Our training in Functional Medicine has been through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM).
