How does a chiropractor become licensed to practice?

By law, every province requires chiropractors to earn a license before they can practice. Graduating chiropractors must attain passing scores on national and provincial board exams administered by the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board (CCEB).

Chiropractic is a self-governing profession which means that doctors are bound to a professional code of conduct through national and provincial chiropractic associations, such as the British Columbia Chiropractors’ Association (BCCA).

This self-regulating and disciplinary process ensures that the public’s health concerns are the chiropractic profession’s highest priority.
