The Newfoundland and Labrador Chiropractic Board (NLCB) is the regulatory body that licenses chiropractors in NL and helps set standards of practice to protect the public. In order to maintain a license to practice, all chiropractors must meet a strict set of guidelines including graduation from an accredited chiropractic college, criminal record check clearance and ongoing education requirements. In addition, all registered chiropractors are required to abide by the Chiropractors Act, 2009 which is an act of provincial legislation as well as any related government regulations and the NLCB by-laws. All chiropractors in NL must be licensed by the NLCB in order to utilize the title of “chiropractor”.

Patients also have recourse through the NLCB if they feel they were treated inappropriately while under the care of a registered chiropractor in NL. The NLCB investigates all complaints that relate to the conduct of chiropractors in NL and takes patient concerns very seriously.
