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.
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.
