No, the LMCC (License Medical Council of Canada), is not a medical degree, nor is an indication of any specialty certification. It is a Canadian medical licensing exam that all Canadian medical school graduates must pass in order to get a license to practice Medicine in Canada. It is basically the same as the USMLE in the USA. You have to have a medical degree to sit this exam. Canadian medical degrees are usually one of the following - MD, MDCM. Some physicians, when trying to pad their qualifications, may place these initials after their name, but this is just fluff. Everyone has to pass this or a similar exam and it does not confer any degree status, just the indication that you have can sit and pass a very difficult exam.
