Temporary Registration

Temporary Registration

Registration class for chiropractors, currently licensed in another regulated jurisdiction, who wish to practice in BC for up to 90 days (eg. chiropractors travelling with a sports team or “hands-on” course instructors). A Temporary license does not provide a BC billing number and does not allow you to provide locum services or provide treatment to the general public.

Registration Process

All applicants for temporary registration must meet the following requirements and complete the following prior to status being granted:

  1. Email registration@chirobc.com to determine eligibility for Temporary licensure.
  2. Create an account at http://www.chirobc.com.
  3. Payment of $100 ($25 application fee + $75.00 Temporary Registration Renewal fee) See Schedule C – Fees.

  5. A copy of your Canadian birth certificate, passport, or proof of eligibility to work in Canada, such as a Visa or permanent resident card. (If applicable, proof that your right to work in Canada is extended for the additional period of the temporary registration you are seeking.)
  6. Proof of professional liability protection or insurance of at least $2,000,000 per claim.
  7. A letter of standing from your current regulated jurisdiction licensing body, sent directly  to the CCBC. The letter must specify particulars of any cancellation, suspension, limitation or conditions on the applicant’s entitlement to practise, or any investigation, review or proceeding which could lead to cancellation, suspension, limitation or conditions on the applicant’s entitlement to practise.
  8. A criminal record check from the non-Canadian jurisdiction(s) where currently practise chiropractic sent from the jurisdiction directly to the CCBC.
