Genetic Counsellor Certification

Canadian Genetic Counsellors are certified by the Canadian Board of Genetic Counselling-Conseil Canadien de Conseil Génétique (CBGC-CCCG). Prior to 2021, the certification process was overseen by the Certification Board of the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors.

The genetic counselling profession is currently unregulated in Canada and, as such, practitioners are not governed by provincial and territorial legislation, which ensure safe, competent, and ethical practice in the interest of public protection. The national certification credential is an important basis for the evolution of professional legislation and regulation in Canada.
