With the savings from these programs alone, your OPA membership will be virtually free!


ADVOCACY

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 NETWORKING

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.
