Accommodations and Assistive Devices

The Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board (CCEB) will assess requests on an individual basis, and, if deemed appropriate, will provide reasonable testing accommodations. CCEB reserves the right to designate the location and date/time of the examination as all accommodations may not be available at any given examination site and/or on any given examination date. This might mean that a Candidate would have to take the examination at a site other than his or her preferred site or city, or on a date other than his or her preferred date(s).


Assistive Device: An Assistive Device is a tool, technology or other mechanism that enables a person to do everyday tasks and activities.
