Recognition at Government Level
At the level of the Canadian government (Federal)
First of all, the Department of Development and Human Resources Canada, the Department of Employment and Immigration Canada accredit the training of the CMDQ (article 118.5-118.6.) Therefore, the tuition fees are eligible for a monthly tax credit under the professional training. See the Canadian Government Accreditation page for the CMDQ Federal Accreditation.
At the Quebec provincial government level
Second of all, the AMCC holds a certificate of approval as a training organization approved by Emploi-Quebec and the Ministère du Revenu du Quebec (see end of sub-paragraph IV of section 337 of the Taxation Act.) Indeed, the AMCC is recognized as an institution providing education (other than that provided for the purpose of granting university credits) which allows “to acquire and / or improve the knowledge necessary for the exercise of a recognized profession”. Therefore, your employer may assume the training expenses that will be deductible from his contributions. In addition, tuition fees are eligible for a tax deduction.
Finally, joining a professional association enables the patients to receive a refund from their private insurance companies. This does not, however, constitute a legal acknowledgement from the Department of Education or the Office des Professions du Québec.
The education offered at the College is internationally recognized by numerous associations. Our students should have no trouble finding and joining an association in France, Canada and the USA. Be aware that some of these associations may ask you to take a theoretical or practical exam to become a member.
