even though this topic was a short and quick read, it is the one topic that I have been thinking about the most, ever since the beginning of chiropractic college: Where do I want to end up?
This is a huge question, that is almost impossible to answer right now, considering I have so much time left to grow and develop more ideals before graduating. This seems like something I wont have to worry about for a long long time, yet I know it will creep up on me quickly.
I had given this some thought before, but it was in a way more general sense. Much more like "where do I want to live and practice?". With this question always at the back of my mind, Alberta or Ontario are always the top two options.
Alberta, specifically Canmore Alberta is like a second home to me. It is thriving, has many young families, and a very active population base that are health conscious. With that said, there is already a chiropractic office in existence there, and they most probably cater to the relatively small population.
Another great location in my eyes in Guelph Ontario, where I lived for my 4 years of undergraduate education. I love Guelph for many reasons; its youthful, fun and active, and to me has a strong sense of community.

The article " Be mindful of these 10 things when searching for potential clinic space" discusses other equally important things to consider for location. Here they are in the order:
