Application and registration process

Applications must be mailed to the ACAC. You will receive an email confirmation when your application is received.

The application and registration process can take up to six weeks. Candidates are strongly advised to refrain from entering contractual arrangements for practice until they have satisfied all requirements for registration, including obtaining the required professional liability protection and subsequent ACAC practice permit.

The General/AIT Application applies to:

a) General class applicants (new graduates and chiropractors currently licensed outside Canada).

For general class registration with the ACAC, you must:

  1. be a graduate of an accredited chiropractic program, and
  2. have successfully completed the CCEB clinical competency exam*

b) Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) applicants (already currently hold an active chiropractic licence within Canada)

If you were previously registered in Alberta, complete the Application for Reinstatement of Registration.

*CCEB exam results are valid for one year from the date the certificate is issued, unless applicants can demonstrate registration in another regulated, ACAC-recognized jurisdiction. For more information visit
