Membership Categories and Fees

We offer several OCA membership categories to suit chiropractors at various stages of their career:

  • Regular Member: For chiropractors who care for more than 60 patients per week and practise more than 12 hours per week.
  • New Graduate: Full-time chiropractors are eligible for a new graduate discount for their first four years in practise, following graduation from chiropractic college. Starting in the 2019-2020 membership year, recent graduates in their first year as licensed chiropractors may volunteer with the OCA through our Save & Serve program, instead of paying for the first year of membership.
  • Part-Time Member: For chiropractors who care for fewer than 60 patient visits per week and practise fewer than 12 hours per week.
  • Associate Member: For chiropractors who are currently not practising in Ontario (retired, living outside of Ontario, etc.).
  • Parental Leave: For chiropractors who are on parental leave and not currently practising.
  • Student Member: A complimentary membership for students enrolled at any chiropractic college.

Please see OCA Membership Dues (PDF) for information on current membership fees.

The OCA fiscal year runs from August 1 to July 31. If you join OCA after our fiscal year begins, your membership fees will be pro-rated.
