Recreation and Student Life

Many of the friendships you form while at CMCC will last a lifetime. Students' Council starts you off on the right foot with an exciting orientation program for new students. Events occur throughout the year including athletic intramurals, pub nights, the Innate Show, a showcase of student talent, barbeques, and other social gatherings.

Recreation

Students get involved in many extra-curricular activities. Chiropractic related clubs include Advancing Science in Chiropractic, the World Congress of Chiropractic Students, Motion Palpation Institute (MPI), Interprofessional Education (IPE), and the RCCSS(C) Sports Club. Many students also participate in a wide range of CMCC sports teams including volleyball, basketball, hockey and soccer.

CMCC's location, nestled in an attractive ravine, provides walking, jogging and biking trails. The on campus recreational facilities include fully equipped cardiovascular exercise and weight training rooms, a large gymnasium and a student lounge.

Toronto offers a diverse range of social and cultural opportunities, reflective of its diverse community. There is something for everyone.

Housing

CMCC does not have student residences. Most students stay in shared rental accommodation near the campus. The campus is located in the north end of the City of Toronto and is surrounded by beautiful trails and park land. To see a map of CMCC’s location, please see section 'Living in Toronto & Housing'.

CMCC partners with an online rental housing listing service called Places4Students. To view listings for rental housing for CMCC students, please visit Places4Students.com.

Student Services staff can also help you to identify neighbourhoods and areas of the city that are close to the campus.

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 – Student 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.

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.
