Abstract

The Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) and the Council of Provincial Associations of Psychologists (CPAP) created a Task Force to study the issue of specialty designation in Canada. As part of fulfilling its mandate, the Task Force surveyed Canadian psychologists and reviewed the status and history of specialty designation in other countries. Based on that data, the Task Force concluded that it was timely for Canadian psychology to implement a specialty designation system. The present paper outlines the rationale for the development of a Canadian specialty designation system.
