Members of the Ottawa Academy of Psychology are psychologists and psychological associates working in the Ottawa area. They are registered to practice in Ontario and have fulfilled the standardized academic and clinical training requirements set forth by the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
To qualify for College registration each member must:
- meet rigorous educational and training requirements for entry into the profession,
- successfully complete designated written examinations, and
- successfully complete an oral examination designed to evaluate readiness for professional practice and knowledge of ethics and standards.
Some members may be working under the supervision of a registered psychologist or psychological associate during their post-graduate year of supervised practice. In these instances, clients are informed of their supervisory status. They are not listed in our Online Directory until they are fully licensed for autonomous practice.
Finally, some members are retired and are no longer providing services to the public, but remain interested and involved in the Academy.
