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.
The election to Council for Electoral Districts 5 (GTA East), 6 (GTA West) and Psychological Associates (non-Voting) will take place on March 31, 2024.
