Accreditation

The Clinical Psychology graduate program began in 1989 and has been accredited by both the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) and the American Psychological Association (APA) since its first application, in 1995.

Our program was most recently reaccredited by CPA in 2012/2013 for a period of six years (our next site visit will be scheduled in 2018/2019). With the program’s APA accreditation status expiring at the end of 2007, we sought CPA accreditation only. Our decision was made after many years of deliberations with the CPA, the Council of Canadian Professional Psychology Programs (CCPPP), as well as the APA decision in February 2007 to cease accrediting non-US clinical psychology programs after 2014.
