About CCNM-Boucher Campus

The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine – Boucher Campus is located in the heart of downtown New Westminster, British Columbia. With the campus located steps from the Columbia Skytrain station, CCNM-Boucher Campus is a 30-minute ride from downtown Vancouver. CCNM is the only naturopathic medical school in Canada accredited by the US Department of Education accredited Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME) in Canada, a professional accrediting agency for naturopathic medicine programs.

Along with our commitment to offering students the highest standard of education, we also strive to preserve a community that is founded on the principles of inclusion, integrity, safety, respect, academic freedom, self-responsibility, innovation, and sustainability. We endeavour to facilitate a community in which each member feels valued and supported on their journey of self-discovery and academic exploration.

Our academic philosophy strives to incorporate principles of research-based learning theory, conventional academic wisdom, clinical experience and creative problem-solving. Through mentorship, students gain insight into new skills and knowledge and familiarize themselves with the naturopathic professional landscape.

CCNM-Boucher Campus is also home to the Boucher Naturopathic Medical Clinic. Faculty and students provide first-rate natural health care for the community and now have the ability to treat patients province wide. We have continued to work throughout the pandemic with virtual and on site care and our patient base continues to recover. The clinic equips our interns with invaluable hands-on experience. We also proudly partner with satellite community clinics, enabling students to gain experience treating different patient populations with a range of treatment modalities.
