Student Organizations

Students’ Council

Students' Council represents student interests in two ways: by acting as a liaison among students, administration and faculty; and by coordinating social and athletic programs and clubs that support a wide variety of interests.

Through Students' Council members or their designates, the students have representation on almost all College committees. The Council also appoints student members to various CMCC committees, and a faculty liaison – the Director of Student Services – advises the Council on administrative developments at CMCC. This ensures coordination among the many activities of the students, faculty and staff.

Year round activities include barbeques, athletic tournaments, many other gatherings, and the annual Innate Show where students can display their many talents The Council also brings students into the community in many ways, such as through organizing food and clothing drives for local shelters.

All students in good academic standing at CMCC are eligible to run for office, however, certain executive positions require previous Students’ Council involvement. Being a member is an excellent way to demonstrate leadership skills and to take an active role in your education. For more information phone 416 482 2340 x 162, or email: sc@cmcc.ca 

SCCA – Students Canadian Chiropractic Association

The Student Canadian Chiropractic Association (SCCA) acts as the voice of Canadian chiropractic students – studying at CMCC and around the world – to organizations such as the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) and provincial branches.

SCCA strives to keep students informed about the political and professional aspects of chiropractic, including seminars, licensing and registration, government funding changes, and interprofessional collaborations. The SCCA executive also works with other campus clubs to invite speakers to CMCC and increase the information about clinical practice available to students.

The Interprofessional Committee works to increase the communication between Canadian student health care associations in various health care fields. The International Committee works to develop a communication link with chiropractic students studying in the United States and abroad, and to increase the benefits available for chiropractic students. The High School Outreach Committee acts to educate high school students about the chiropractic profession. The newly formed Volunteer Committee is an excellent way for students to find opportunities to contribute to their community.

The SCCA meets monthly at CMCC. All chiropractic students are members and encouraged to attend! Come back to the website regularly for updates throughout the year with important information from the profession. If you have any questions at any time, please contact scca@cmcc.ca

WCCS – World Congress of Chiropractic Students

WCCS members have an interest in the realities of practicing in different countries. Representatives attend an annual international congress where delegates of chiropractic schools from around the world debate proposals on issues relevant to chiropractic students and the profession. The club organizes presentations on practicing chiropractic in various countries, and includes such information as the country’s chiropractic philosophy and the process of becoming certified there.
