Supervised Practice: Psychological Associate

If you have a masters degree in psychology and have not previously been registered as a Psychological Associate in any jurisdiction, you must apply for a Certificate of Registration Authorizing Supervised Practice.

Or, if you have a masters degree in psychology and have been registered for the practice of psychology in a jurisdiction where the requirements are not equivalent to Ontario registration requirements, you must apply for a Certificate of Registration Authorizing Supervised Practice.

In order to expand upon the information in the Registration Regulation, further details about the requirements for registration, the registration process, and the application procedure are available in the Registration Guidelines: Psychological Associate – Supervised Practice.

The Registration Guidelines are intended to help give applicants an idea of the steps involved in becoming a Psychological Associate and whether they are likely to meet the requirements for registration.

Why is there a submission deadline to the Registration Committee meeting?

It’s necessary for the College to establish a deadline for receiving submissions to the Registration Committee to ensure there is adequate time to process the information, plan accordingly, and most importantly to have the information prepared for the Registration Committee so that they can review it in advance of their scheduled meeting.

The College often receives a high volume of submissions to the Registration Committee. Making a submission to the Committee well in advance of the submission deadline assists the College’s administrative staff in their planning and allows time for  staff to contact you in case it’s discovered that additional information or clarification is needed before the information goes before the Committee.

The Registration Committee meets every other month, if you miss the submission deadline your submission will be scheduled for the next available Committee meeting instead.
