The Graduate Program in Clinical Developmental Psychology is accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA). Our last accreditation review occured in 2012, and we have been accrredited until 2017 (5 years). Our program is not accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). APA is in the process of phasing out its accreditation of all non-American programs, including those at Canadian universities. No Canadian programs will be accredited by APA beyond 2015. Also note that a programme must be accredited at the time the student completes the program in order for the student to be able to declare that he/she graduated from an accredited program. If you have any questions or concerns about the accreditation status of our program, please contact the Director of Clinical Training, Dr. Maggie Toplak.
