    All chiropractors working in Yukon must be registered and hold a licence.

    Apply for registration and a licence if you are planning to use the title of doctor of chiropractic and work to the full extent of your training and Yukon regulations.

    We accept new chiropractor applications on an ongoing basis. You only need to apply for registration once but you must renew your licence every year. All chiropractor licences expire annually on March 31.

    If you have had any complaints, disciplinary or criminal action against you, you may not be approved for registration or licensing.
