Administrative history

The Medical Council of Canada was established in 1901 by an Act of Parliament. Its purpose was to establish uniform professional qualification procedures in all provinces, maintain a register of medical practitioners and set standards for inclusion, establish a board of examiners, facilitate registration of Canadian physicians in the U.K., and promote consistency and cooperation in provincial medical legislation. Its membership is drawn from provincial medical councils, and from the body of practitioners at large.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Half of these records consist of printed annual announcements (including Canadian Medical Register) from 1914 to 1961. The remainder consists of a number of files on "old controversies" stripped from the MCC files in 1955 and sent to Dr. D. Sclater Lewis. Some of the controversies concerned a move to amalgamate MCC examinations with final-year university medical examinations, 1941; the status of homeopathic practitioners, 1923-1940; registration in the U.K., 1914-1925; the petition of returning military medical officers to take the MCC licence without examination, 1919; and control of specialists by the MCC, 1934-1935.
