An accreditation system for respiratory therapy education programs in Canada is provided through the Council on Accreditation for Respiratory Therapy Education (CoARTE). The CoARTE accreditation system ensures that universities and colleges offering respiratory therapy education programs meet the profession’s national competency standards for entry-level respiratory therapists. More information on CoARTE can be found at csrt.com/en/coarte/index.asp.
The University of Manitoba Respiratory Therapy program underwent a complete accreditation process in 2013 and was awarded “accreditation” status by CoARTE until 2019. For further information or to review the program’s accreditation reports please contact Dr. Reg Urbanowski, Acting Head of Respiratory Therapy, at Reg.Urbanowski@umanitoba.ca.
