As the new Canada regional chair, I am ready and excited to support and grow our longstanding Community Psychology community in Canada! In this new role I will be re-launching our TCP regional updates and directing energy towards amplifying and reconnecting our vibrant network of Canadian practitioners, faculty, students, and alumni! 

Since taking on this position in 2020 I have been in conversation with faculty at our three long standing CP programs in Canada (Wilfrid Laurier University, Université du Québec à Montréal, and the University of Ottawa) and have been able to connect into work that is already happening and co-imagine what it will look like going forward. In the coming year we have plans to: 

  • Identify graduate and undergraduate student representatives from each program to develop and sustain a Canadian CP student network. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student in a CP program and are interested in getting involved please connect with at  

  • Host a regional gathering in summer 2021 (Date TBD). This gathering will bring together students, practitioners, and faculty in a digtial social hour, with networking and relationship building opportunities along with space for planning and skill sharing. More information will be shared on the SCRA listserve and through Canadian networks.  

  • Share quarterly updates and news from the Canadian region. If you, your CP program, research institute, community-based organization, or other community network has news, updates, awards, or knowledge and projects to be mobilized please connect at 

It is with pleasure that we look to grow our Canadian network, along with our connections and relationships with the global CP community.
