CCA Membership Terms and Conditions
All Canadian-licensed Chiropractors who are members in good standing of their relevant

Chiropractic Association (CCA) with full voting privileges. By becoming a member of the CCA,

Terms & Conditions on the CCA website.
All active CCA members are categorized as Regular Members unless they are eligible for

category to a Regular member, the CCA will inform members of any additional dues owing to

Practice Interruption: This category falls under the “Other” category if members will not
be practicing for a period of more than 1 month but less than 12 months (Maternity leave,
sick leave, etc.). The CCA member will be transferred to the ‘Other’ category. This will
allow them to maintain their CCPA (protection, malpractice) coverage for the duration of
If a member wishes to change categories from Regular to Other or vice versa, all members must
do so with the intent to stay in that category for a minimum of 6 months without changing back
into another category.
New Grad Members:
CCA members who have graduated within 12 months of registering with the CCA are
categorized as New Grads. These members receive up to 18 months of complimentary
membership before they have to begin paying their dues. Upon entering into the paying cycle in
their second year, all New Grads have the opportunity to pay quarterly installments for their
Once members join the CCA, the membership department will verify you are apart of your
respective provincial association before moving forward with a letter of good standing to the
The CCA professional membership year is January 1 to December 31 annually. All professional
memberships expire on December 31 regardless of when they commenced.
Renewal Deadline, Grace Period, and Termination:
Current CCA memberships are due for renewal by November 30 prior to the start of the
membership year. Members must pay all outstanding fees from the previous year in order to be
eligible to renew. Subject to the payment of all outstanding fees, memberships auto-renew on
November 30 for the following membership year unless the member notifies the CCA that they
do not wish for their membership to renew. If a member resides in Quebec and has questions
regarding changes to their account relating to the CCA, please contact your provincial
association to handle such requests. We will work with your provincial association to ensure all
updates and changes are in accordance with our policies.
The membership dues shall increase by two percent (2%) each membership year unless specified
otherwise. Membership dues are payable in advance for the following membership year between
September - December. Where members have submitted a payment method to the CCA and joined
autorenewal for membership dues, the CCA shall automatically charge such payment method on
November 30 for the next year’s membership dues in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
Those members who have not paid their membership dues by November 30 will be provided with
a grace period to pay their dues in full to remain in good standing till December 31 before a late
fee of $115 is applied. If a member has not paid their membership dues by December 31, they will
receive a 10 day grace period to renew their membership. After the grace period, in accordance
with CCA Bylaws, the CCA Board of Directors or a designated committee of members will be
informed and provided consent that the member will no longer be considered in good standing.
Members who have not paid their membership dues following the end of the grace period will no
longer be considered to be in good standing, and this change in status will be reported to the CCPA.
Members who have not renewed their membership (Regular or Other members) or who have not
paid their membership dues by December 31 prior to the start of the membership year are subject
to an additional late fee of $115 in order to become a member for that membership year.
New Professional Members:
A “New Member” is defined as a newly-licensed chiropractor or an existing Doctor of
Chiropractic who has not been a member of CCA in the past 12 months. Membership fees will
be pro-rated corresponding to the month of joining. CCA members must also become a member
in good standing with their provincial association. Following these steps will allow all members
to gain full access to the Canadian Chiropractic Protective Association (CCPA).
By providing the CCA with their payment method information, each member: (i) represents that
they are authorized to use the payment method that they have provided and that any payment
information they have provided is true and accurate; and (ii) authorize the CCA to charge the
payment method for their membership dues and other services or products the member may
purchase from the CCA.
All members who are leaving the association for more than 12 months are eligible to cancel their
memberships. Please ensure your status is up-to-date with all related parties involved. The CCA
will inform the CCPA appropriately of any changes or cancellations, which is a requirement for
CCPA liability protection. Members who are requesting a cancellation of their membership can
do so immediately online at the time they would like to cancel their membership. All changes
and/or cancellations will be processed on the same day of the month. All refunds due to a change
of status or cancellation of membership will be processed on the official effective date.
Members who choose to cancel their membership with the CCA from January 1- June 30 of the
current year are eligible for a pro-rated refund representing the remainder of months in the year.
From July 1-December 31, any member who chooses to cancel their membership with the CCA
will not receive a refund. All members who change their membership status (Regular or Other
category) throughout the year will receive a refund or will be required to make appropriate
payment for the specific category they move into on a pro-rated basis for the remainder of the
membership year. Once you change your category, you cannot perform another change for a
minimum of 6 months.
All members except Quebec are responsible to contact the CCA to cancel or change their
membership category. In special circumstances when the Province or CCPA reaches out to the
CCA for a member cancellation, the CCA will follow through on that request and update the
members account immediately without notice to stay in compliance with our bylaws. Members
of Quebec are required to contact their provincial associations to handle any CCA related request
regarding cancelling or changing of status.
The refund policy at the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) extends for the current year
only. All dues that go back to previous years or outside of the current year are non-refundable
unless deemed appropriate.
Total annual dues for the CCA are collected every year from October through December for the
following year. Pro-rated refunds are applicable for a change of status or cancellation request.
Also, depending on the change of status request, a member may be required to pay a pro-rated
amount. For any special circumstances or extraordinary cases, a detailed email outlining what
has happened will be required for CCA to determine next steps. An email will be sent to
acknowledge your receipt of your request and another email to inform you of your approval or
rejection of a refund.
