We collaborate with various organizations to support chiropractic and other regulated health care for Ontarians. Since 2022, we’ve participated in the CEO Partnership Roundtable, alongside all other provincial associations, Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA), and Canadian Chiropractic Protective Association (CCPA). Read the October 2023 update of this work (also available in French).

Here are examples of organizations OCA works with:

Ontario Organizations:

  • College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO) – regulates chiropractors in Ontario to ensure every patient receives safe and quality care.  It was established by the Regulated Health Professions Act and the Chiropractic Act to serve as the legislated regulatory body for chiropractors in Ontario. Every chiropractor practising in Ontario must be a registered member of CCO.
  • Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) is an independent, self-funded, regulatory agency that operates arms length from the government. It regulates financial service providers, such as insurance companies and pension plan administrators. Its mandate is to protect consumers and pension plan beneficiaries in the province of Ontario.
  • Ministry of Health – The provincial government ministry that oversees health care in Ontario
  • Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) of Ontario – An independent trust agency that administers compensation and no-fault insurance for Ontario workplaces.
