Courtesy (Temporary) Applicants

A person registered or licensed as a psychologist or its equivalent in good standing in another jurisdiction who requires registration in Alberta on a temporary basis for a specified purpose and period of time may be eligible to apply for registration on the courtesy register.  As stipulated by the Psychologists Profession Regulation, courtesy registration can be issued for a maximum of one year.

Given the "temporary" nature of this category of registration, normally a second application for temporary registration will be denied. However, each application will be reviewed and considered on its own merits. 

To apply for registration as a courtesy applicant, please go to MyCAP Login to create an account and apply online.
