MCA serves the best interests of the public by regulating and advancing excellence in chiropractic care. Canadian chiropractors adopt evidence-informed practice principles to guide clinical decision-making by integrating their clinical expertise, patient preferences & values, with the best available scientific evidence.

Chiropractic Legislation in Manitoba

The MCA is both a self-regulating professional body and a member association that governs doctors of chiropractic in Manitoba, under the legislative and regulatory authority of The Chiropractic Act.

In addition, the profession is governed by a set of regulations drawn up by government and a set of by-laws as approved by the membership at large. The MCA regulatory framework is also accompanied by Standards of Practice, a Code of Ethics, Practice Directives and Regulatory Notices.

This combination of legislation and regulations guides and directs the MCA in their mission of fostering and ensuring the highest standard of chiropractic healthcare for all Manitobans.

Making a Complaint

As the professional regulatory body for Doctors of Chiropractic in Manitoba, our primary responsibility is to protect the public. To this end, the MCA uses a complaints process as empowered by legislation (The Chiropractic Act) to address allegations of unacceptable conduct and practice by any Manitoba Chiropractor.

Licensing in Manitoba

By law, every province requires chiropractors to earn a license before they are granted the privilege of treating the public. To be licensed, chiropractors must graduate from an accredited chiropractic educational program and pass stringent national examinations, administered by the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board (CCEB), as well as a provincial exam.

Contact the Registrar at if you have any questions about licensing.
