The Canadian Orthoptic Council (COC) is the group sanctioned by The Canadian Ophthalmological Society to govern and certify orthoptists in Canada. The Orthoptic training centers in Canada are, in turn, accredited by Accreditation Canada.
For employment in Canada an orthoptist requires successful completion of COC certifying exams. Each certificant must pay COC annual fees, and submit proof of continuing education.
