College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO)
On March 31, 2015, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) advised that the Psychotherapy Act, 2007 would come into force on April 1, 2015, thereby creating the new College of Registered Psychotherapists and Registered Mental Health Therapists of Ontario (CRPO).
Psychotherapists as Regulated Health Professionals
Regulatory colleges are mandated to regulate professionals in the public interest. In addition to establishing rigorous registration criteria, the College will regulate practitioners by establishing and maintaining standards of practice, promoting continued competence and quality improvement, and ensuring professional accountability.
Who practices psychotherapy?
Besides Registered Psychotherapists – who are Members of this College – the members of five other regulated professions practise psychotherapy: nurses, occupational therapists, physicians, psychologists and psychological associates, and social workers and social service workers. This College has no role in the regulation of members of other colleges whose members may practise psychotherapy.
