President’s Message to PEICA Members

May 27th, 2019

Dear PEICA Members,

Spring has arrived, and we welcome this time of renewal with exciting new updates for counselling therapists in PEI.

The Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) designation is now recognized by the Department of Veterans Affairs nation-wide for billing of counselling services. For more information, contact the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA's).

PEICA has been granted $8,000 in new funding from the CCPA for expenses associated with our efforts in becoming a regulated profession. We have hired a consultant to work on drafting the bylaws for the anticipated regulated body, and look forward to working with government in this process.

The PEICA Annual General Meeting was held Thursday, May 23rd, at the Dundee Arms Pub, Charlottetown. Thank you all to who attended. Minutes will be emailed to members.

Our grant for professional development opportunities is now available online, click to apply here

I encourage all eligible counsellors to maintain a current membership with the PEICA, and to encourage new members to join. With increased recognition of the counselling profession, opportunities for expansion of counselling services are likely. When we are united as a professional membership, we can offer even more support to each other in this time of growth. Visit for membership registration.

Thank you for being a member of the PEICA.

Bethany Toombs, M.Ed. C.C.C.
President, PEICA
