Welcome to the Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy – Toronto Campus.

International students wishing to apply to study at the Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy (CCMH) must apply for a study permit/student visa from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

The Massage Therapy Diploma program at the CCMH qualifies for Foreign Student Authorization as a Designated Learning Institution under the Private Career Colleges Act, Ontario.

International Transcripts

If you graduated high school and/or college/university from a country other than Canada or the United States, we require your credentials to be submitted in English.

The following options meet this requirement:

(1) Submit your academic record/transcript for an ICES (International Credential Evaluation Service) report. If you have completed courses in human sciences and are seeking to be exempt from certain CCMH courses, we require the Comprehensive Report be conducted on your credentials.

All teaching and assessment at CCMH is in English. Therefore, all students applying for admission, whose first language is not English, must satisfy the College that they have the required command of the English language to be successful in our program of study.

Please refer to the Program Prerequisites for information on English language proficiency scores that meet our admission requirements. Proof of English language proficiency must be submitted with other Application documents.

The College will not proceed with any application from any student whose first language is not English until the prospective student has demonstrated the language competency requirements have been met.
