President’s Message to PEICA Members
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.
For more information, visit the College of Counselling Therapy of PEI website
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.
With the College now in place, PEI Counselling Association will continue to operate as a separate entity.
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 regulated, the association is 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 email@example.com.
