Benefits of Membership
The OPA offers its members an array of membership benefits and perks offerings. These include professional liability insurance coverage, extended health and home and auto insurance programs as well as several tools to help members manage their practice. The OPA also has over 3000 local and national businesses who offer our OPA members discounts. The OPA is constantly looking for new products to help you to manage your practice as well as provide some savings for your home life. With the savings from these programs alone, your OPA membership will be virtually free!
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. We know and understand the needs for mental health in the province prior to COVID exceeded the supply and now since COVID have become overwhelming. The province faces serious and significant challenges as they try to fill these demands.
OPA members can benefit from 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 using OPA Marketplace or looking for a supervisor, the OPA brings the psychological community together. The OPA LISTSERV(s) allow 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. In addition OPA members can opt in to the OPA’s e-referral and matching service powered by Strata Health Pathways system as well as our searchable online Find a Psychologist and Media Contact databases, accessible to the public other health professionals, government and media.

By way of background, Refer To Me is primarily a B2B Canadian health technology company based in Toronto. It was founded by an Ontario-based psychologist who, after thirty years in private practice, recognized the need for health professionals to have a common space in which to network and refer to one another.
Refer To Me allows professionals to sign up for a membership that is best suited for each of them. Health professionals may sign up to either grow their practices or lighten their workloads (refer out only).
Professionals who sign up to grow their practice will pay a one-time fee for a lifetime membership. However, OPA members are being offered a 15% discount.
For verification purposes, a unique coupon code – RTMOPA – must be used on the checkout page once a membership has been selected at refertome.ca/membership-options
Then, the member will be able to create a profile page with information that the general public and other professionals, who are looking to make referrals, can access.
There is no fee to sign up for the Lighten Workload membership, to refer out only.
Please write to [email protected] if you have any questions.
