Foot Care OCPC



Foot Care Clinic & Training Center

At our clinic we recognize the importance of feet in everyday living, activities, and maintaining general health. We are a specialized clinic where health professionals, known as Chiropodists, diagnose and treat specific foot conditions. 


We also advise you on how to prevent future foot problems through foot care training.

Foot care is provided at several locations throughout the city and area. We offer both outreach and office foot care.

At the OCPC the focus is on foot care for general population. The Clinic cares for children, the elderly, and those who have a specific medical problem, such as poor circulation, diabetes or arthritis, where regular professional foot care is critical.

What is the difference between Chiropodists and Podiatrists?

All foot care specialists (chiropodists and podiatrists) in Ontario are licensed to practice by the College of Chiropodists of Ontario.  Podiatrists in Ontario recieved foot care training in the USA, and began their practice in Ontario prior to 1992. 


Chiropodists are graduates of a post-graduate extended 3 year program.  They are trained to assess, treat and prevent foot disorders by conservative methods including prescribing and fitting orthotic devices, prescribing and administering drugs as well as by more invasive methods such as soft tissue and nail surgery under local anaesthesia.  They are increasingly working in the prevention and care of diabetic foot problems.

Is the treatment covered by O.H.I.P.

Chiropodists who practice privately charge a fee. Their services are not covered by Ministry of Health funding or O.H.I.P., but may be covered by a private health insurance plan. Patients should consult their chiropodist concerning the fees, as well as their insurance company and ask what services are included under the plan.
