Temporary Emergency Class of Registration

The College has established a temporary emergency class of registration as per the requirement of the Ministry of Health. Of note, all health professional Colleges in Ontario were required to create a temporary emergency class of registration, as reflected in amendments to the Health Professions Procedural Code of the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991. The Registration Regulation of the Psychology Act (1991) was amended to reflect the profession-specific temporary emergency class of registration. The decision to activate temporary emergency registration would be based on the Minister’s request (or Council’s determination) due to emergency circumstances that doing so would be in the public interest.
