    The Canadian Council of Professional Psychology Programs (CCPPP) Award for Excellence in Professional Training is awarded every year in which meritorious candidates are nominated. One award per year is available to a candidate from an academic setting, and one to a candidate from an internship setting.

    The objective of the awards is to acknowledge the importance of professional training in psychology by recognizing a psychologist for his/her outstanding contributions to the professional training of graduate students/interns.

    We have extended the nomination deadline to February 1. Go on holidays, and come back refreshed and enthusiastic to nominate that incredible supervisor, colleague, mentor, etc. Check out past awardees and nomination criteria at

    Nominations can be sent to: 

    Le Prix du CCPPP reconnaissant l’excellence en formation professionnelle est décerné chaque année où des candidats méritants sont proposés. Chaque année, un prix peut être attribué à un candidat provenant d’un établissement d’enseignement universitaire et à un candidat provenant d’un établissement d’internat.

    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.

    Nous avons prolongé la date limite de présentation des candidatures jusqu’au 1er février. Partez en vacances, et revenez revigoré et impatient de proposer la candidature d’un superviseur, d’un collègue, d’un mentor ou d’un collaborateur extraordinaire. Consultez la liste des anciens lauréats et les critères de mise en candidature sur notre site Web, à l’adresse

    As some may be aware, the CCPPP Residency Finances Working Group surveyed trainees in Canadian residency programs in 2021-22. Ninety percent of surveyed residents responded, sharing deeply personal and impactful feedback. With gratitude to the working group and all residents, we share the report of this work below.

    The CCPPP Training Directors Finances Working Group has received this report and is working in parallel on next steps for advocacy. We invite all interested parties to join us at the CCPPP Annual General Meeting on June 22, 2023 in Toronto to discuss the findings of this report, receive the recommendations of the Training Directors Finances Working Group, and work together as a training community for urgent change.

    In the meantime, the CCPPP encourages training directors to use this report as an advocacy tool to give voice to the financial needs of residents within your organizations.

    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.

    Have you seen the CCTC Social Responsiveness Toolkit and don’t know where to start? Does the size of the toolkit intimidate you?

    Are you interested in learning more about how some of your neighbour programs are using the CCTC Social Responsiveness Toolkit?

    CCPPP Wants to help!

    Please join us for some zoom consultation drop in sessions where your CCPPP Exec will review the main points for each module as well as examples of some actionable steps your programs can make toward infusing social responsiveness into your programs. These drop ins will be hosted by both an academic and internship member.

    There are no right answers, and no standardized template that will work for all.

    This is an opportunity to share ideas, and learn from one another in a safe learning environment.

    Upcoming Sessions:

    Friday November 12 at 3pm EST - MODULE ONE, Diversifying the Pipeline - Lesley Lutes (academic) and Sara Hagstrom (internship)

    Register here

    Thursday December 16th at 2pm EST - MODULE TWO, Shared Governance - Amanda Maranzan (academic) and Sara Hagstrom (internship)

    Register here

    Stay tuned for dates for Modules 3-9

    We are thrilled to share this comprehensive resource for graduate students, practicum supervisors and training directors designed to answer the age-old psychology training question, "how do I count this hour, anyway?"

    This resource was born out of a CCPPP Town Hall meeting in 2018, built on careful review of existing guidelines, extensive consultation within the Canadian training community, constructive feedback on a widely circulated beta version, and tireless work of a CCPPP task force chaired by Dr. Diane LaChapelle (

    Please download, share widely, and use!  As we've all been reminded in spades over the past 18 months or so, clinical practice and training are subject to change.  Feedback is enthusiastically welcome on this document, and annual updates are anticipated.  

    This resource is available for direct download here, and also linked on the "resources" pages of our website.
