List of Osteopathic Colleges

The following eight schools offer manual osteopathic educational programs in Canada that are based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines on osteopathic education and as a result are approved by COMPO (College of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners of Ontario).

The profession of osteopathy is regulated in Canada and only American style osteopathic physicians may use the term "osteopathy" and "osteopath". Manual osteopaths (European style osteopaths) in Canada call themselves either manual osteopaths or osteopathic manual practitioners. And the profession they practice is called manual osteopathy or osteopathic manual practice.

Manual osteopaths practice hands on techniques while American style osteopaths are permitted to perform surgery and prescribe medications.

American style osteopaths in Ontario are members of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, while osteopathic manual practitioners are members of other organizations.

Manual osteopaths are permitted to practice in all Canadian provinces and currently there are over 1200 manual osteopaths practicing in Canada, 700 of them being in Ontario.

The number of American style osteopathic physicians (doctors of osteopathy) in Canada is less than 50.
