The College of Psychologists of Ontario is the governing body for Psychologists and Psychological Associates in Ontario. The College’s mandate is to protect the public interest by regulating the practice of psychology in Ontario. The College is governed by a Council comprised of seven elected professional members, two to three appointed academic members or the profession, and five to eight public members appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. In addition, there is one elected, non-voting Psychological Associate member. All members of the College Council, whether elected or appointed, represent the public and not the constituency of the district or university from which they were elected or appointed.
Nominations are now being accepted for the Council elections being held on Friday, March 31, 2023. The three-year term of the newly elected Council members will begin on June 16, 2023; the first scheduled Council meeting following the election. The College encourages and welcomes all members from the eligible districts to consider this opportunity to serve the public interest and contribute to the profession. The deadline for nominations is March 1, 2023.
Elections will be held for the following districts:
- Electoral District 4 (East): composed of the districts of the counties of Lanark, Renfrew, Leeds and Grenville, Prescott and Russell, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, and the City of Ottawa.
- Electoral District 7 (Psychological Associates): composed of the constituency of Psychological Associates.
