IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR PAM PSYCHOLOGIST CANDIDATE (C. Psych. (Candidate)) REGISTRATION APPLICATION

Dear Applicant,

The ASPPB Psychology Licensure Universal System, or “PLUS” is an online system designed to allow individuals to apply for licensure, certification, or registration in any state, province, or territory in the United States or Canada. The PLUS allows individuals to apply, online, for licensure while enabling concurrent application for the ASPPB Certificate of Professional Qualification (CPQ) and Interjurisdictional Practice Certificate (IPC). In this way, application information is “banked” for any future applications to other jurisdictions or mobility credentials. All information collected as part of your licensure application is automatically deposited and saved in the ASPPB Credentials Bank: a Credentials Verification & Storage Program (The BANK). This information can be accessed by you or forwarded to any other licensing board, organization, entity, or individual, upon your written request at any time.

Currently, the Psychological Association of Manitoba is offering you the opportunity to use the PLUS system for your Psychologist Candidate application. The cost for the PLUS system is currently $200.00 with an additional $100 payable to PAM for administrative costs (this is identical to the $300 fee for a paper application). By completing the PLUS electronic application form and providing all requested credentials, you will be creating a permanent Credentials Bank record of your education, training, experience and credentials at no cost to you. The Credentials Bank Program provides a way for psychologists to store evidence of their professional education, experience, prior licensure, exam performance and other achievements. Once archived, this information can be accessed and submitted to any psychology registration/licensing board, employer or other agency per the psychologist’s written request. Utilizing the "Bank" helps to reduce potential inconvenience associated with documenting compliance with registration/licensure criteria, particularly long after one’s training and initial licensure.

To begin the PLUS process, please complete the Initial PLUS Application for Registration in Manitoba form found (here), submit to The Psychological Association of Manitoba 162-2025 Corydon Ave, #253. Winnipeg MB R3P-0N5 E-Mail: pam@mymts.net and pay the $100.00 registration fee. An ASPPB PLUS Licensure Specialist will contact you directly with further instruction.

Please note:

ASPPB does not determine your eligibility for licensure. When you submit a PLUS application for licensure, your completed application package is forwarded to PAM, where our Registration Committee then will determine your eligibility for licensure.

You may still apply using the previous paper approach, however we encourage you to consider applying through the PLUS. If instead of using the PLUS system you wish to use the paper application, please complete the Psychologist Candidate application found (here) .

Please contact the Registrar (pam@mymts.net) with any questions.

Thank you.
