frequently asked questions


What does membership with the qca mean?

Membership to the QCA is obtained through the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). You must be a member of the CCPA in order to apply for joint membership to the QCA. Please click here to be directed to the CCPA site and the instructions for the professional membership application.


We are not a professional order like the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec. If you wish to practice as a psychotherapist in Montreal you MUST join the Ordre des Conseillers et Conseillères d’Orientation du Québec, as well as, the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec.

We offer certification as a Canadian Certified Counsellor which is different than being a professional member of the CCPA. The certification route is outlined here.

What services do you offer?

We have professional development workshops throughout the year and networking opportunities with counselling professionals in the Montreal area. We also are involved in various mental health initiatives to help raise awareness.
