About Headlines

HEADLINES is the official publication of the College of Psychologists of Ontario, the governing body for psychological practitioners; Psychologists and Psychological Associates, in Ontario.



President’s Message

Chaucer’s famous phrase that time and tide wait for no (one) is often used to motivate us to action; reminding us that we need to engage rather than wait.


Registrar’s Message

For this edition of my Registrar’s message, I begin by referencing preeminent psychologist, Dr. Marsha Linehan, “change is a natural life occurrence.” We can attempt to hold onto the present moment, and yet we inevitably come to learn that the present has become the past.



I am excited to be introducing the inaugural “member series” article of HeadLines, Zeitgeist, the first of its kind for the College.


Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee Update

The College remains committed to the principles of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and to incorporating EDI into all aspects of the College’s work and its regulatory processes. The College has created an  EDI page on which information and resources are continually updated.
