Policy & Public Affairs

Part of the mandate of the OPA is to raise the profile of the profession with the public, government, and relevant private interests. OPA is the collective voice for psychology in Ontario. As such, it represents the professions’ interests to governments, third party payers, other service providers, professional associations, and with the public. The stronger the collective, the more we can accomplish together.
