EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM

On June 1st the CAMFT launched an Emergency Response Team! Thank you everyone who has volunteered to be a part of this team. The ERT’s mission is to provide Brief Couples & Family Therapy to those who do not have the financial means to access experts in Couple & Family Therapy. Our focus will be on helping Canadian couples and families during times of national, local or family crisis. We are offering three CFT sessions for free and if you wish to continue, we have a sliding fee scale to ensure affordability.

Our current focus is on couples and families who have been highly impacted by the COVID19 pandemic. This includes those whose jobs put them at risk for infection as well as those that medically are at high risk just by being exposed to people.

If you would like to access Couple & Family Therapy through the ERT please click here to complete the registration form. Once we have your information one of our ERT members will contact you.


The Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy / Lassociation canadienne pour la thérapie conjugale et familiale (CAMFT/ACTCF) was founded in 1995 to promote the profession and practice of couple/marriage and family therapy in Canada.

The Registered Marriage & Family Therapist (RMFT) designation shows that our RMFT members have met rigorous standards and are exceedingly well qualified to practice Couple/Marriage and Family Therapy. The RMFT credential sets these therapists apart from other psychotherapists who may identify themselves as Individual, Couple and Family Therapists but not necessarily have the same level of training, education and experience compared to RMFTs.

Mental health professionals who are interested in working from a systemic perspective are encouraged to further their knowledge and training by becoming a student, affiliate or associate member of CAMFT.

A dedicated volunteer board of directors from across Canada leads the CAMFT. The priorities of the board in 2020 are :

  • Protecting our RMFT designation
  • Keeping dues low to be inclusive of clinicians from all socioeconomic backgrounds
  • Building up our capacity of RMFT Supervisors    
  • Delivering more educational opportunities such as webinars and conferences
  • Creating a fully bilingual website
  • Expanding our public directory of our members that the public can easily use
  • Developing regional and special interest branches
  • Launching a CAMFT Journal
  • Working with Canadian post-graduate programs to develop a common set of standards for accrediting programs which train future C/MFT’s
  • Changing the name of CAMFT to be more inclusive and accurately reflect what it is our members do
  • Creating opportunities for our members to network and connect

L'association canadienne pour la thérapie conjugale et familiale/Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (ACTCF/CAMFT) a été fondée en 1995 afin de promouvoir la profession et la pratique de la thérapie de couple/mariage et familiale au Canada.

La désignation de thérapeute de mariage et de famille enregistré (RMFT) montre que nos membres RMFT répondent à des exigences rigoureuses et sont qualifiés pour pratiquer la thérapie de couple/mariage et familiale. Le diplôme RMFT distingue ces thérapeutes des autres psychothérapeutes qui peuvent s'identifier comme thérapeutes individuel, de couple et de famille, mais qui n'ont pas nécessairement le même niveau de formation, d'éducation et d'expérience que les RMFT.

Les professionnel.le.s de la santé mentale qui souhaitent travailler avec une perspective systémique sont encouragés à approfondir leurs connaissances et leur formation en devenant étudiant.e.s, affilié.e,s ou membre associé.e.s de l'ACTCF.

Un conseil d'administration bénévole dévoué venant de tout le Canada dirige l’ACTCF. Les priorités du conseil en 2020 sont:

  • Protéger notre désignation RMFT
  • Maintenir les cotisations à un bas prix pour intégrer les cliniciens de tous les milieux socioéconomique
  • Création d'un site Web entièrement bilingue
  • Renforcer notre capacité de superviseurs ACTCF
  • Offrir plus d'opportunités éducatives telles que des webinaires et des conférences
  • Création d'un répertoire public de nos membres facilement accessible par le public
  • Développer des branches régionales et d'intérêts spéciaux
  • Lancement d'un journal ACTCF
  • Travailler avec les programmes postuniversitaires canadiens pour développer un ensemble commun de normes et compétences pour la formation des futurs TCF
  • Changer le nom de ACTCF pour être plus inclusif et refléter avec précision ce que font nos membres
  • Créer des opportunités pour nos membres de réseauter et de se connecter
