Welcome to the 

Canadian Professional Counsellors Association 

The Canadian Professional Counsellors Association (CPCA) is a nationally recognized, independent, self-regulated, non-profit organization registered in accordance with the National Corporate Registry of Canada. The Association is governed by a National Board of Directors which is elected annually by it's members.

CPCA Members are Registered Professional Counsellors and Master Practitioners in Clinical Counselling who are regulated and have received the RPC and/or MPCC designations upon meeting competency-based criterion for membership.  

Since our founding in 1990, the CPCA has been dedicated to the promotion of public confidence and trust in the counselling profession in Canada. The CPCA serves the public from coast to coast to coast.  

The Mandate of the Association

 To foster public protection by regulating its members’ professional practice through a comprehensive Code of Ethics, competency-based assessment, ongoing evaluation, and clear expectation of compliance with standards of practice. 

    To promote and support members to develop excellence in professional skills for competent clinical counselling/psychotherapy.

  The professions’ leadership has shown that it will distinguish between the public interest and the professionals’ self interest and in self-regulating will favour the former.
