About PAA


The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta is the voice of, and for, psychology in Alberta. We are the voluntary body that advocates for psychology in Alberta, informs the public and the media, and advocates for consumers of psychotherapy, psychological, and mental health services.

The Mission of the PAA is to advance the science-based profession of psychology and to promote the well-being and potential of all Albertans.

Vision PAA & Its members are recognized leaders in enhancing the psychological health of all Albertans.

We provide professional development and networking opportunities for our members, have an active communications strategy, and operate a province-wide referral service. We support many initiatives that seek to enhance psychological health and wellness in our province.

Since 1996 PAA has been the primary professional association for Albertan psychologists. We are a separate organization from the College of Alberta Psychologists [CAP]. CAP is the regulatory body for the profession in the province.
