Importance of Accreditation

Accreditation by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) indicates that our program meets the standards that are thought to be important by the broader psychology community for a professional psychology training program. Our doctoral program was initially accredited in 2004 and has been continuously accredited ever since. Most recently, we received accreditation for 2018-19 through 2024-25. Graduating from an accredited program has several advantages for our students as only students from accredited programs are eligible to participate in the APPIC internship matching program. As well, being from an accredited program facilitates your application for licensure or registration as a clinical psychologist and many employers prefer individuals who have graduated from accredited doctoral and internship programs.
