Welcome to the College of Alberta Psychologists website.
The College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP) is the regulatory body for the profession of psychology in Alberta. CAP regulates the profession by setting entry-to-practice requirements, establishing, promoting and enforcing standards for registration, practice and professional conduct.
Information about CAP, the registration process, complaints and discipline, legislation and privacy, as well as a members registry, are available on this website.
Responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions’ Calls to Action, it is with respect, and in the spirit of reconciliation and truth, the College of Alberta Psychologists honour and acknowledge that, here in Alberta, Treaties 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10 – as well as many unsigned treaties – are the traditional and ancestral territory of many diverse Indigenous peoples. Namely, they are: the Kainai, Piikani, Siksika, Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, Tsuu T’ina Nation, Inuit and the Métis Nation.
We acknowledge and give thanks to the many First Nations, Métis Nations and Inuit peoples who have lived on 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.
