What is a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC)?

The designation of Canadian Certified Counsellor is obtained through a national service that identifies to the public those counsellors whom CCPA recognizes as qualified to provide counselling services in Canada. Obtaining the status of Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) includes recognition of standards of professional preparation, meeting of continuing education requirements, and adherence to a formal code of ethics and standards of practice. As a self-regulating body, CCPA provides advice, resources, and discipline for certified members related to matters of professional conduct.
