Did you know that the majority of claims made against Psychology Practitioners in the CPA/CPAP program are complaints made to the regulatory Colleges?

It’s been brought to our attention that other programs have removed this important coverage.

Ensure you’re protected.

The CPA/CPAP Professional Liability Insurance Policy automatically includes a limit of $300,000 per claim for “Regulatory Legal Expense Coverage”. Participating members (excluding students) can rest assured knowing that coverage is in place to pay the legal costs associated with a regulatory defence.

As the exclusive and official insurance program endorsed by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) and the Council of Professional Associations of Psychologists (CPAP), members receive cost-effective and comprehensive protection that is supported by your association. CPAP is an organization representing CPA and the provincial and territorial associations of psychology (about CPAP). Members of CPA and/or members of a provincial or territorial association can participate in the Psychology Practitioner Liability Insurance Program. A list of the participating associations can be found here.

As one of the largest programs in the country with over 10,000 participating members, the CPA/CPAP Member Liability Insurance Program offers a full range of coverages specifically designed to meet your practice risk needs. Coverage options include protection for Professional Liability, Commercial General Liability and business-related exposures.

With expert service and support on your side, new risk resources and best-in-class legal defence, our program is better designed to suit your professional needs.

The CPA/CPAP Member Liability Insurance Program runs on a common renewal date of June 1st. Eligible members can purchase or renew coverage at any time throughout the policy term.
