About the Centre
The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) is the alliance of state, provincial, and territorial agencies responsible for the licensure and certification of psychologists throughout the United States and Canada. ASPPB was formed to serve psychology boards in the two countries. Currently, the psychology boards of all fifty states of the United States, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and all ten provinces of Canada are members of ASPPB.
The primary purpose of the Centre for Data & Analysis on Psychology Licensure (the Centre) is to support psychology licensing boards in making informed licensure decisions through consistent data collection, analysis and reporting. With the launch of the Centre, ASPPB wants to thank our member boards for their participation and we look forward to continued collaboration in the collection and analysis of data for the regulation of the profession of psychology.
