Benefits of Membership

The OPA's number one product is Advocacy: The OPA advocates for the people of Ontario who need improved access to psychology in order to live their healthiest, most productive lives. Membership in the OPA — one of the most dynamic psychological associations in North America — also brings with it the recognition of being part of a well-respected network of healthcare professionals who demonstrate their commitment to strengthening the image of psychology through personal and collective clinical, educational and research activities. Students, clinicians, academics, researchers – or any combination thereof – benefit from a variety of activities, products and services that enhance their personal and professional lives. 
 

Advocacy

  • Advocacy is at the very heart of OPA’s mission.  The OPA advocates not just for the profession of psychology, but also for improved access to high-quality mental health services for the people of Ontario. The OPA is raising the profile of psychology with the public, government, media, and other stakeholders. 

Networking & Promotion

  • OPA members highly value the support they receive through their OPA colleagues.  Whether meeting through the Listserv, or face to face at a continuing education event; whether seeking to hire someone, or looking for a supervisor — the OPA brings the psychological community together.
  • The OPA Listserv allows members to give and receive “just-in-time” guidance, advice and mentoring. Our members tell us that this is one of the most valued services we offer.  Members have access to the collected wisdom of our profession from psychologists who practice in the same province as you.
  • Members can opt in to OPA’s searchable online Find a Psychologist and Media Contact databases, accessible to government, other healthcare professionals, public and media.
