The Newfoundland & Labrador Psychology Board (NLPB) regulates the profession of Psychology in the province of Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada
The Newfoundland and Labrador Psychology Board (NLPB) regulates the profession of Psychology in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, under the authority of the Psychologists Act (2005). The NLPB consists of five elected Registered Psychologists and two Public Members appointed by the Minister of Health.
All Psychologists must subscribe to:
- The Canadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists,
- The NLPB Standards of Professional Conduct, and
- The Practice Guidelines for Providers of Psychological Services, published by the Canadian Psychological Association.
Psychologists registered with the NLPB are accountable to the board, as authorized by the Psychologists Act 2005, for their conduct. If you have questions or concerns about the conduct of a psychologist, or you wish to make a complaint about the conduct of a psychologist, you may contact the Registrar.
Under the Psychologists Act only a person registered with and by the NLPB may use the designation “Psychologist” and only Registered Psychologists may provide psychological services to the public. The public is advised to confirm the registration status of any individual service provider regardless of whether the name of a partnership, group, company, or corporation contains the word “psychology” or advertises that psychological services are delivered.
