In BC, chiropractors are primary health care providers that are regulated by the College of Chiropractors of British Columbia (CCBC). The CCBC is one of over 20 health regulators in this province. Under the Health Professions Act (HPA), the CCBC sets the minimum standards for all practicing chiropractors and performs ongoing competency requirements such as continuing education, quality assurance measures and criminal record checks.
Patient and public safety is the primary objective of the CCBC. It is important that all patients understand their rights to ensure they receive quality health care services from a competent professional. Learn more about what you should expect from your chiropractor and your rights as a patient.
