ATTENTION:  Prospective CRPO Members

The transitional Council is recruiting prospective members to serve as volunteers on its committees. This is a separate call from the recent notice seeking reviewers of psychotherapy education & training programs. Please read the following information carefully.


The transitional Council, and later the new College, is required to create various committees to oversee its programs. Some committees will be composed, in part, of College members appointed by Council. If you are planning to become a member and would like to contribute to the work of College committees, we encourage you to apply. In particular, we are seeking individuals who have been following the activities of Council, and are familiar with its work.


To apply, kindly complete and submit the form linked in the left sidebar, along with a cover letter and your résumé. In your letter, please explain why you are interested in serving as a CRPO committee member, and how your background equips you to make a positive contribution.


The application form asks about your committee preferences. A description of each committee is found on the last page of the application. Please note that while your preferences will be considered, the final determination of committee composition will be based on College requirements and each applicant's skill set.


To be eligible, applicants must have completed the Professional Practice & Jurisprudence e-Learning Module, and must intend to become a member of the College. In addition, they must meet the requirements listed in article 13.14 of the CRPO By-laws. In particular, they must not:

  • have had any professional discipline or incapacity findings made against them within the past three years;
  • have any ongoing professional discipline or incapacity proceedings against them;
  • be a member of the council of any college governed by the RHPA, or of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers; or
  • hold any position such as director, board member, officer or employee with a professional association relating to psychotherapy (unless they plan to resign the position prior to appointment to a CRPO committee).

Applicants selected for an interview will be contacted this month or early in the New Year.


Those selected will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement, and to adhere to conflict-of-interest protocols. Committee members are remunerated in accordance with the rates established by Health Boards Secretariat for publicly appointed Council and committee members.
