The transitional Council of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) is the governing body of a new health regulatory college, currently under development in Ontario. The College will be established under the Psychotherapy Act, 2007 and the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA).

Pre-registration for ‘Grandparenting’ Now Open

The transitional Council is pleased to announce that the online ‘Grandparenting’ Application for Registration is now available for those who have created a user account on our Membership Management System and completed the Professional Practice & Jurisprudence e-Learning Module (“JRP Module”).

Pre-registration provides an opportunity for prospective Members of the College to apply for consideration of their application for registration in advance of the date the Psychotherapy Act, 2007 is proclaimed. Applicants who have been accepted provisionally for registration will be advised of such, and immediately following proclamation they will be informed that their Certificate of Registration has been issued. Note: the proclamation date has not yet been set.

  1. Create a user account (see link at bottom of email) or login at top right corner if you have already created an account;
  1. Enroll and pay the required fee ($60 + HST = $67.80) to access the Jurisprudence (JRP) e-Learning Module;

  1. Access the Grandparenting Application through your user account; complete the form and pay the application fee ($125 + HST = $141.25) before submitting it (the system will not accept your application until the fee has been paid).
