As the impact of COVID-19 is being felt worldwide, we recognize the pressure this evolving crisis is placing on students, educators, teachers, supervisors and practitioners of psychology throughout Canada. On behalf of the CPA, we extend our gratitude for the leadership roles so many of you are playing in your communities and your efforts to address the needs of your colleagues, students, patients, government and the public. To support your efforts, and to inform the public, we have compiled and created a variety of resources.
