Membership Categories and Dues

There are several OCA membership categories to suit your current situation:

  • Regular Member
  • New Graduate: Full-time members are eligible for a new graduate discount for the four years 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 their membership.
  • Part-Time Member: For members with fewer than 50 patient visits per week and practicing fewer than 15 hours per week.
  • Associate Member: For members who are currently not practicing in Ontario (retired, living outside of Ontario, etc.).
  • Parental Leave: For members who are not currently practicing due to parental leave.
  • Student Member: Students enrolled at any chiropractic college are entitled to complimentary OCA memberships.

Please see OCA Membership Dues – 2019-2020 (PDF) for information on membership rates. The OCA fiscal year is from August 1 to July 31 and fees are pro-rated.
