Mission Statement

The mission of the Counsellors for Social Justice Chapter of the CCPA is to advocate for social justice and social change through the role of the professional counsellor. The Chapter promotes equity and human rights for individuals and societies through action, education, training, consciousness-raising, advocacy, and conscientious objection. The Chapter is dedicated to working across borders, boundaries, professional disciplines, and differences in the pursuit of peace and wellness for all. As part of the Chapter’s “Counsellors Without Borders” initiative, the Chapter created a wiki website where professional counsellors can search for volunteer opportunities, find social justice resources and exchange information, comments and stories from the field. The Chapter has a long list of objectives, some of which include raising critical consciousness of counsellors and psychotherapists regarding social, structural, systemic, eco-justice, global equity issues, and human rights, promoting education and skills training as well as support for members and encouraging non- partisan advocacy that promotes public, organizational and legislative action related to social justice.
