Testing Accommodations and Assistive Devices

CCEB examinations are designed to test the knowledge, skills, and abilities of those seeking admission to the practice of chiropractic in Canada.  It is the policy of the CCEB to administer the written and practical examinations in such a manner that qualified Candidates with disabilities and religious beliefs will not be disadvantaged. The CCEB acknowledges that reasonable testing accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities and religious beliefs.

A Candidate may request reasonable testing accommodations. Testing accommodations are adjustments or modifications to the standard testing procedures or testing conditions that assist in removing any barriers faced by the Candidate in writing the examination as a result of a physical disability, mental disability, or religious belief. Such testing accommodations are to provide Candidates with an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge or proficiency as required and must not disadvantage other Candidates and must not alter the validity or the reliability of the examination(s). Accommodation does not relieve the Candidate of the responsibility to demonstrate the Candidate has the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to practice chiropractic.

The Candidate agrees by requesting testing accommodations that the CCEB has the right to disclose any testing accommodations granted to the provincial and territorial chiropractic regulatory bodies for the purposes of consideration for professional licensure. Any impact on the licensing of a Candidate is at the sole discretion of the provincial regulatory bodies.

If you require testing accommodations, please refer to the Testing Accommodations Policy for the required forms and documentation, requests are to be submitted to the CCEB prior to the  application deadline.

Additionally, candidates require prior approval for assistive devices:

  • Casts
  • Crutches
  • Hearing aid
  • Insulin pump
  • Prescriptions
  • Medically required foods.
    • No food will be permitted at the examination without prior CCEB approval. For the safety of other candidates, no products are to be brought on to the track that contains any of the priority food allergens identified by Health Canada.

Requests are to be submitted to the CCEB prior to the application deadline.

Please note that documentation is not required for eyeglasses; however, they along with all other Assistive Devices will be inspected at Registration.
