The World Federation of Chiropractic’s 10th Biennial Congress,
co-sponsored by the Canadian Chiropractic Association, will be held at the

Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Recent WFC congresses have been in Portugal,
Spain (2007); Sydney, Australia
(2005); and Orlando, Florida (2003). This is the first WFC

During the past six months, a planning committee with
representatives from the WFC, CCA, and other organizations has developed and
confirmed the main elements of the academic and social programs, which are
expected to attract more than 1,000
doctors of chiropractic from over 40 countries. You will not want to miss
this unique program and this opportunity to celebrate chiropractic with old and
new colleagues from around the world.
