Joint Submission to the Subcommittee on Sport-Related Concussions in Canada

This submission is a result of collaboration between the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA), the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences Canada (RCSSC), the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC), the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative (CCGI) and Dr. Moshen Kazemi, Chiropractic Representative in the Canadian Concussion Collaborative (CCC).

We are pleased to provide this joint submission to the Subcommittee on Sports-Related Concussions in Canada (SCSC) of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health, with our three key recommendations on how Canada can better protect athletes from concussions and make sport safer for youth.



CCA’s 2019 Pre-Budget Submission to the Standing Committee on Finance focuses on two key Recommendations:

  • Recommendation 1: That the government amend the Income Tax Act (1985), s. 118.4 (2), in order to add chiropractors to the list of practitioners eligible to assess disability and issue the Disability Tax Credit Certificate.
  • Recommendation 2: That the government provide funding to both the Department of National Defence and Ministry of Veterans Affairs to implement Recommendations 14 and 15 in the report tabled in May, 2018 by the Standing Committee on Veterans Affairs entitled “Barriers to Transition and Measurable Outcomes of Successful Transition”
