Becoming a Member
To practice as a Chiropodist in Ontario, you must hold a certificate of registration with the College of Chiropodists of Ontario.
The role of the College is to regulate the profession of Chiropody in the public interest. As part of this mandate, the College sets the standard for entry-level requirements for safe and ethical practice.
While all applicants must meet the College’s registration requirements, there are different pathways to registration.
You may not work as a Chiropodist or in any way hold yourself out as a person qualified to practice chiropody in the province of Ontario until after you have been issued a certificate of registration.
