    Except from the attached document introduction:

    The Canadian Council of Professional Psychology Programs (CCPPP) Training Directors’ Finances Committee would like to acknowledge the important work of the CCPPP Student Finances Committee and the numerous pre-doctoral psychology residents who responded to the Residency Finances Survey Report. In particular, the remarkable vulnerability of the qualitative responses has offered a valuable window into the challenges most residents face in coping with financial insecurity during their final year of training. This is an important issue facing the training community that demands a response.

    To this end, the linked report of the CCPPP Training Directors’ Finances Committee presents a synthesis of the relevant issues, and a toolbox of strategies to advocate for adequate financial support for residents.

    We invite all interested parties to join us at the CCPPP Annual General Meeting on June 22, 2023 in Toronto to discuss these important issues and work together as a training community for urgent change.

One award per year is available to a candidate from an academic setting, and one to a candidate from an internship setting.

    L’objectif de ces prix est de reconnaître l’importance de la formation professionnelle en psychologie en récompensant la contribution exceptionnelle d’un psychologue à la formation professionnelle des étudiants/internes.

    Given the positive feedback from students and members alike, we will continue to recommend the voluntary 2-step interview notification and booking system this coming year, as well as a recently re-organized distribution of interview scheduling.

    Universal Interview Notification and Response Dates

    First Friday of December: December 2, 2022 - Universal NOTIFICATION Date

    That is, all applicants applying at Canadian Internship Sites will be informed of their interview status on this day. No interviews will be booked until the following Monday.

    First Monday of December: December 5, 2022 - Universal RESPONSE/BOOKING date

    This is the date applicants can begin contacting sites who have offered them interviews. Students can start booking their interviews with their internship sites at 11:00 am EST on Monday, December 5, 2022.

    Interview Dates

    Long-serving members may recall that CCPPP has previously put forward an annual regionalization schedule to simplify travel for applicants. With a shift to virtual interviewing, the recommended schedule has been adjusted. (Please login to our discussion board thread: Hogwarts Has Sorted the Internships... for background and recommended assignments.)
