Update on the process of regulation:
CCPA supports the work being done by The Federation of Associations for Counselling Therapists in Newfoundland and Labrador (FACT-NL) in seeking regulation. FACT-NL is an alliance of professional associations that represent counsellors and therapists practicing throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
An application for regulation has been submitted to the provincial government and has passed the proposal stage. FACT-NL been in regular contact with the regulatory office for the province’s health and community services division. The health and community services division are hosting a series of consultations with other professional groups who work in the same or overlapping areas (social work, clinical psychology, etc). Once these consultations are complete, the next step in the review process will be determined.
