Andrew Benedetto and I just wrapped up our series of four town hall meetings across the province and the results were eye-opening. Over 200 RPs, students and stakeholders in Sudbury, London, Ottawa and Toronto came out to share information about what’s happening on the ground and at CRPO as the regulation of the profession continues to evolve.
Much of the feedback from participants has been positive; each community expressed that it was helpful to make a face-to-face connection with the college and to demystify CRPO processes.
“Great event and very helpful. Learned new critical information about supervision and controlled Act.”
Thank you for a very informative and interesting session. I truly am a proud college member and look forward to future gatherings. Well Done!!!”
The differences between what the College would do and what the Professional Association could do was clarified, as was the role of Psychologists who were supervising. I appreciated that.”
Participants also highlighted access to care concerns regarding HST and third party insurance, as well as ongoing questions regarding clinical supervision. A video recording of the Toronto town hall is
now available here
and the most frequently asked questions at all four town halls will be posted on the website shortly.
Thank you to everyone who participated. CRPO is moving into a period of preparation around a strategic planning process early next year, and all of the town hall discussions we engaged in will be fed into that process.
