President’s Message to PEICA Members
Aug 2, 2021
Dear PEICA Members,
Lobbying for regulation of the profession of counselling therapy has been a focus of our work at PEICA for some time. After much effort from our Regulation Committee, I am pleased to announce that the College of Counselling Therapy of Prince Edward Island has officially opened, as of August 1, 2021. The professional title "Counselling Therapist" and "CT" is legally protected from that date onward, meaning that anyone who practices using that title will be required to register with the College.
My heartfelt thanks goes out to each of the Regulation Committee members who have volunteered their time of countless hours to make this College a reality.
PEICA will continue to operate as a separate entity, but will link to the College on our website. The new College website, including the online registration system is found at www.cctpei.ca and will be live by August 6, 2021.
Members will also receive updates via emails and virtual Q&A sessions. To stay informed, I encourage you to attend and ask questions to help you better understand the process. For more information on regulation, visit our Resources section
As this monumental shift happens for the counselling therapy profession, I am keen to work with the executive and membership to continue to build on and grow PEICA into a strong and engaged association. With the counselling profession becoming regulated, the association will be even more important to help counsellors share professional knowledge, develop counselling opportunities such as employment, and further strengthen the profession here on PEI.
Should you have any thoughts or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
