History

In 2000, with the help of NCR Chapter member Jeanette Rooney-Ozols, Lorne Flavelle (a past president of CCPA) took the idea behind his organized monthly networking meetings and developed the Private Practitioner Chapter. The Chapter was officially recognized in May 2002 at the CCPA annual conference.

The chapter’s mission is to support the work of CCPA members who are in, or considering being in, private practice. The Private Practitioners Chapter will endeavour to identify, anticipate, and meet the needs of private practice practitioners.

A few years ago, the Private Practitioner Chapter created a committee that worked on the issue of third party billing. They gathered documentation and provided information concerning third party billing to counsellors. However, until counselling is regulated in Canada, insurance companies have refused to meet with the association to discuss the matter and therefore the committee’s work was put on hold.
