Welcome to the Indigenous Initiatives section of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). Our journey is rooted in the acknowledgment of the lands we inhabit and the recognition of the historical and ongoing impacts of colonization on First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in Canada.

Through our work, we aim to uplift and address the needs of Indigenous counsellors, psychotherapists, clients, families, and communities. By fostering meaningful partnerships across a diverse network of stakeholders, we strive to ensure that counselling and psychotherapy services are culturally competent, trauma-informed, and supportive of a healing journey that honors the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation. 

Join us to explore our initiatives, access resources, and connect with the CCPA Indigenous community, as we work collectively towards reconciliation. Click on each section below to learn about our initiatives, to learn, and to get involved.
