If you are currently
fully registered to practice as a psychologist or psychological associate in
another Canadian province or in the North West Territories (NWT), you may apply
for a certificate authorizing autonomous practice as a psychologist or
psychological associate in Ontario.
Once you have

practice as a psychologist or psychological associate in Ontario.
However, if you wish to practice psychology in Ontario
prior to passing the JEE, in your application you may request that the
College issue you with a certificate authorizing interim autonomous
practice which will allow you to practise psychology as a psychologist or
psychological associate in Ontario without supervision for a period of up to
twelve months while you prepare to pass the JEE. Upon successful completion of
the JEE, the College will issue you with the certificate authorizing
autonomous practice as a psychologist or psychological associate.
