Legal and jurisdictional issues in Canada

Under Ontario law, only therapists so licensed by an Ontario college are permitted to do psychotherapy with an Ontario resident.

The same goes for Quebec. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia also register counselling therapists, but as things stand therapists from other provinces can work with their residents online. Alberta is also developing regulation. Virtually all the U.S. states require that anyone doing mental health work with their residents be licensed in the state. Unfortunately these mini-jurisdictions make it difficult for long distance couples to obtain online relationship counselling.
