    http://apti.ca/  
    For a long time there has been a diverse and rich offering of psychotherapy services in Ontario- and behind that offering are the many psychotherapy training schools in this province that are devoted to training high quality psychotherapists.
    A group of such training institutions with over one hundred years of collective experience have joined to form APTI- to offer their collective expertise and experience to the government.
    Most recently, APTI members have pooled their knowledge to create one core curriculum for psychotherapy training in Ontario that would protect both the high quality of psychotherapy that is currently offered in Ontario, and the rich diversity of psychotherapeutic modality from which Ontario residents can now choose.
