COVID-19 Updates and Information

The CAP office is open as of June 1, 2020. To reduce the risk for spreading COVID-19, CAP is discouraging face-to-face, in-person office visits at this time. Face-to-face meetings are by appointment only and visitors will be pre-screened by staff prior to attending the CAP office. All visitors will be required to complete a written COVID-19 screening checklist upon arrival. These checklists will be retained for the purposes of contact tracing while the pandemic is ongoing. We appreciate your understanding as we all navigate these unprecedented times together. If you have any questions, we welcome you to contact us by phone or email.

About the College

Our mandate is to serve the interests of the public and guide the profession of psychology.
The College of Alberta Psychologists (the “College”) is the regulatory body for the profession of psychology in the province of Alberta. Self-regulated professions establish entrance criteria and apply ethical codes and practice standards for the profession. The regulatory body also investigates complaints of unprofessional conduct and, where appropriate, takes steps to enhance the practice of its members to protect the public. Information about the College and about registration processes, professional conduct, legislation and privacy, as well as a members registry, are available on this website. It is not a post-secondary or educational institution.

Land Acknowledgement

With respect, and in the spirit of reconciliation and truth, we honour and acknowledge that where we are, here in Alberta, are Treaties 4, 6, 7 & 8 – as well as many unsigned treaties – are the traditional and ancestral territory of many diverse Indigenous peoples, namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney-Nakoda, the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and the many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community. We are dedicated to ensuring the spirit of all Treaties are honoured and respected. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.

The College Stands Against Racism and For Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

Register as a Psychologist


This section provides information and resources regarding registration requirements, fees and the forms that must be completed in order to become a registered psychologist in Alberta.

On September 30, 2021, CAP will be transitioning to a new Member Management System and an enhanced website to better serve our applicants and regulated members, and in doing so, the public at large. This means that after September 30, 2021 all credentials evaluation and registration applications that require approval of the Credentials Evaluation Sub-Committee (CESC) and Registration Evaluation Sub-Committee (RASC) will be online through the new member portal. As such, all current CESC and RASC applications have been removed from the website as we are no longer accepting paper forms.

Please check back on our website after September 30, 2021 to submit your application(s) online through our enhanced member portal. If you have any questions, please contact communications@cap.ab.ca. Please note during this transition period there may be a delay due to volume. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
