Hypnotherapy Legislation in Canada (3)
Counselling and Hypnotherapy Legislation in Canada has become an important and complex topic. It affects counselling and hypnotherapy students and practitioners everywhere. Every province makes up its own laws defining legally what a counsellor actually does. In this space, I will be choosing specific geographical areas in Canada and writing about the current legislation or lack of in each district. I hope this can help students and Counselling Hypnotherapists.

Update: Alberta is now the 5th province to commit to legally define counsellor and or psychotherapist. They have asked FACT Alberta to begin processing new applications in preparation for future legislation. The possible new legislation looks very similar to what FACTBC has proposed specifically in how it uses core competencies rather than requiring a specific degree. Legislation could happen by the Fall of 2020.
