Apply to provincial regulatory board where you are going to practice. For those planning to practice in an unregulated area the CAND recommends that you maintain a license from one of the provincial regulatory boards.

Malpractice Insurance Coverage

Licensure requires malpractice insurance coverage. The CAND obtains great rates through Paisley-Partners Inc. Insurance Brokers.

NDs must ensure they meet the insurance coverage requirements set by the regulatory authority in their jurisdictions. Coverage limits range from $2,00000 to $5,000,000 depending on scope of practice and jurisdiction. In unregulated jurisdictions it is recommended that NDs carry a minimum of $2,000,0000 and up to $5,000,000 if they are providing higher risk treatments such as IV therapy, chelation therapy etc. For more information on insurance offerings and applications please contact Roshan Philip at [email protected] or 1-877-427-8683.
