College of Chiropractors of Ontario – Complaints, Investigations and Professional Misconduct

Chiropractors are governed by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (“the CCO”). The CCO’s mandate is the protection of the public. In doing so, the CCO investigates complaints, reports, and allegations of professional misconduct.

If the CCO has received a complaint about you, you have the right to receive a copy of the complaint and respond to it. The complaint and your response will be provided to the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (“the ICRC”) of the CCO. The ICRC has the power to decide whether your matter will be sent to the Discipline Committee for a hearing. If you provide your own response to the complaint, that response can be used against you by the College at a Discipline Hearing or in any other proceeding. Our firm has significant experience responding to complaints on behalf of Chiropractors in order to protect their rights and interests.

Lawyers for Chiropractors

You may be the subject of an investigation by the CCO or by an insurance company. Undercover investigations by the CCO and insurance companies can and do occur. If you have been notified that you are the subject of an investigation, or believe that you may be the subject of an investigation, our firm can represent you throughout the process to protect your career, professional reputation, and your interests. It is crucial to get legal assistance to avoid having an insurance company delist you or your clinic.

If you are the subject of a discipline proceeding, you will receive a Notice of Hearing, which will also be posted publicly on the CCO’s website. A Discipline Hearing is just like a trial or court hearing. The Discipline Committee of the CCO has the power to:

  • revoke your certificate of registration;
  • suspend your certificate of registration;
  • impose terms, conditions and limitations on your certificate of registration for a specific or indefinite period of time;
  • require you to appear for a reprimand;
  • require you to pay a fine of up to $35,000; and
  • require you to pay the costs and expenses of the investigation and the legal costs and expenses of the hearing

Our firm has significant experience representing Chiropractors who are the subject of complaints, investigation and Discipline Hearings.

Don’t wait until your matter has been referred to a Discipline Committee of the CCO. Click here to contact Damien Frost & Associates LLP for a free consultation.

Highly Recommend!

"I have been very pleased working with Rebecca. She worked very efficiently, professionally and cared for every step, as we went through the process with Ontario College of Pharmacists. Initially I thought I would be going through a nightmare when I received my paperwork from Ontario College of Pharmacists, but Rebecca made the process seamless and the outcome was positive. Thank-you Rebecca and I would highly recommend your excellent professional service to others."


Very Professional and Helpful

"I hired Ms Rebecca Young regarding a legal matter in October 2015. I found her and the firm to be very professional and helpful. The whole process took about one year to resolve. I followed her advice and the outcome was in my favour. I would recommend her for her professionalism, knowledge and pleasant attitude."


Excellent Advocacy. Pleased with the Outcome!

"Daniel, Thank you for your excellent work. I am pleased with the outcome. I didn’t feel ‘prosecuted’ and I believe that is due to your excellent advocacy skills and rapport with the Court."


Very Pleased with Mr. Frost’s Representation

"We were very pleased with Mr. Frost’s representation. He provided us with the best possible legal representation. He was dedicated to obtaining a tremendous resolution in what was complex litigation while being always mindful that we required a cost-effective solution."


Nothing Short of Remarkable!

"I was very grateful to have the knowledge, experience and support of Rebecca Young when I was presented with a legal issue concerning my private practice. She ensured that my own professionalism and experience were demonstrated while representing me in communication with the CRPO. In addition, she offered recommendations to improve my due diligence measures, thereby further protecting my business and reputation going forward. Thank you Rebecca."


Truly Professional, Confident & Trustworthy

"I was very happy with how Damien Frost handled my case and with what they accomplished for me. From my very first call with Rebecca, she gained my confidence and trust. She was very knowledgeable and she handled herself with true professionalism. She took the time to explain to me the process as well as her strategies so I always knew what was going on. She was always an email or a phone call away and she resolved my case to my full satisfaction."


Incredibly Supportive & Experienced

"I had an extremely positive experience working with Rebecca Young. She is so pleasant to deal with and not only provided sound counsel right from the first day but continued doing so in a manner that was clear and compassionate. Incredibly supportive and experienced team. I was kept up to date at every step and got an amazing outcome in a very short time. Highly recommend working with Rebecca!"


Instantly Put Me At Ease

Rebecca was very helpful in my particular situation. I spoke to a few lawyers before her and I can't tell you how good she was. She instantly put me at ease by telling me what I was dealing with - others had scared me a lot. She was almost my therapist whereby I would get in touch with her, send my thoughts, and get responses on what the process looked like - she was straightforward, compassionate and understanding of the situation. Great service and no fear-mongering at this company. Thank you for all your help, Rebecca!
