If you have been registered or licensed, on the basis of a doctoral degree, for the autonomous practice of psychology in a jurisdiction other than Ontario, and you are planning to move to Ontario and begin practising psychology, you must apply, under Section 5.(2) of the Registration Regulation, for a certificate of registration. This will allow you to practise while you complete the registration process.
There are a variety of materials that members holding certificates for interim autonomous practice will find of value. This includes the Registration Guidelines; Psychologist – Interim Autonomous Practice covering such topics as:
- Overview of Requirements
- Registration Process
- Duration of Certificate
- Definition of Practice Areas
- Definitions of Knowledge and Skills for Professional Practice
In addition other information is provided which will be of interest to interim autonomous members.
