The National Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of CCPA is a policy board. There are thirteen elected Directors representing all provinces and territories of Canada.  Starting in 2014, an annual appointment of an Aboriginal representative to the CCPA Board of Directors took place. The Executive of the Association is comprised of the President, President-Elect, Past President, Treasurer and the Chief Executive Officer. Together, these professionals conduct research and outreach, and function as stewards of the Association. They are tasked with the responsibility of ensuring the policies, procedures, initiatives, and advocacy work of the Association are aligned with the best interests of our members and the public.

The Board of Directors is the direct link to the voice of our CCPA membership. As elected officials, they bring to the table the concerns, interests and contexts of counselling and psychotherapy professionals across the country. In addition to the Executive Committee, the Board of Directors consists of one representative per region, except in New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario where there is one Francophone Director and one Anglophone Director from each province. The Director for British Columbia also represents the Yukon, the Director for Alberta also represents the North West Territories, and the Director for Manitoba also represents Nunavut. The Director of a region must have their primary residence or workplace in the region that they serve. The Chief Executive Officer of CCPA is a non-voting member of the Board of Directors.

Jacqui Synard

Ontario Anglophone
Jacqui Synard

As a member of the national CCPA Board, I feel quite grateful for the opportunity to work towards advancing the counselling profession as Ontario Anglophone Director. Maintaining our unique values and identity as counsellors is critical as our profession responds to trends ranging from improved awareness of mental health to increasing regulation.

In assuming this important role, I draw from my experience serving as a Board Director with the CCPA National Capital Region (NCR) since 2009. In addition to amazing professional development seminars, this Chapter has built a strong local counselling community where we support each other as both colleagues and friends. I have also had the opportunity to contribute to the CCPA on the national level through being a CCPA 2011 conference steering committee member, leading  advertising and sponsorships for the conference, presenting at CCPA conferences, and publishing in the Canadian Journal Counselling and Psychotherapy and Cognica.

Professionally, I bring a multi-faceted background in counselling, research in positive psychology, and teaching experience via my recent Ph.D. from the University of Ottawa which focused on processes of well-being in the face of adversity. Most importantly, I am a passionate counsellor (RP, CCC) who enjoys helping clients to build their resilience and make meaning in the face of life’s challenges. I also bring a background in business based on a previous career which included an MBA and over ten years of experience in marketing and developing partnerships for technology-sector companies. Finally, I am the founder of Meaningful Change which aims to enhance personal and organizational well-being via workshops and training services.

In my personal life, I first and foremost enjoy being a mom to two kids that have taught me and my husband a lot about life over the years. I also like to keep busy by spending time with family and friends, being active, and hanging out at Chapters and Starbucks as frequently as possible!

I look forward to connecting with my fellow CCPA members. Your ideas, suggestions, and questions are most welcomed!

Vicki-Anne Rodrigue

I am both humbled and honored to have been reelected for a second consecutive term as one of the two Ontario Directors, along with my colleague, Mr. Nicholas Renaud. It is always a privilege to serve the Ontario Francophone membership of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).

Education and Training

I completed my undergraduate training at Laurentian University (Sudbury, Ontario) and my graduate training at the University of Ottawa (Ottawa, Ontario), Saint Paul University and l’Université Laval (Ste-Foy, Québec). I am currently completing the Third Party Neutral certificate through the Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution and endeavor to continue my doctoral studies as of the Fall 2018.

Personal and Professional Work Experience

My areas of expertise are in trauma and crisis counselling with a specialization in Psychotic Disorders (notably Schizophrenia), Eating Disorders (notably obesity) and Anxiety Disorders (notably Posttraumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD).

I have been a counsellor educator for several years and have had the opportunity to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses at the University of Ottawa, Saint Paul University and La Cité collégiale.

Having experienced discrimination and harassment in professional work and academic settings alike, I developed a keen interest for both the informal and formal processes, which led to my developing an additional expertise in conflict resolution and harassment prevention and resolution. Whilst I no longer work in mental health, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work as a Senior Conflict Resolution Practitioner and as a Senior Harassment Complaints Advisor for the Federal Public Service. Combining both my passion for conflict resolution/harassment prevention and my love of teaching has led to my currently working as the Project and Training Coordinator for the Office of Conflict Resolution at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. I enjoy what I do and my team is unmatched in professionalism, dedication and kindness.

Core Values

Integrity, righteousness and humility are at the core of my being and I value open and honest communication. Outside of the workforce, I love spending time and caring for my cat Felicity and growing family. I am actively engaged in my Church through the hospitality and worship teams and through community outreach by way of ministry to the poor, homeless and those suffering from mental illness.

Please feel free to contact me for any assistance. I look forward to serving you for the next two years.

Thank you, merci, meegwetch!
