At the Annual General Meeting in April, we announced that our name has been officially changed to the Canadian Association for Couple and Family Therapy (CACFT). Our members voted in a survey last year, and CACFT was the winning name. Our website and all its documents will be changed over the next little while. Please be patient while we do that.

The Canadian Association for Couple and Family Therapy

Lassociation canadienne pour la thérapie conjugale et familiale

Founded in 1995 to promote the profession and practice of couple/marriage and family therapy in Canada.

CAMFT/ACTCF, now CACFT/ACTCF has duties and responsibilities to the public at large and all those who seek our services, as well as to its members, and to the profession of Couple and Family Therapy. We meet these duties and responsibilities by: the regulation and oversight of membership credentials and continuing education; setting accreditation standards for Marriage & Family Therapy education; and by establishing and maintaining a Code of Ethics and standards of practice, and a disciplinary procedure for handling ethical violations; as well as by providing membership services and benefits.

The Registered Marriage & Family Therapist (RMFT) designation shows that the therapist is a member of the association and is in the RMFT member category. They have: 

  • Have met rigorous educational standards making them exceptionally well qualified to practice Couple/Marriage and Family Therapy. 
  • Have done more training and coursework in Couple & family therapy than most other psychotherapists.
  • Have more supervised hours of practicing couple/marriage & family therapy than the average psychotherapist.
  • Continuously update their knowledge of C/MFT by completing yearly mandatory continuing education requirements.

The priorities for CACFT/ACTCF  are:

  • Protecting our RMFT designation
  • Keeping yearly dues low ($50 - $137.50) to be inclusive of clinicians from all socioeconomic backgrounds 
  • Working with insurance companies to get RMFTs covered by private health plans
  • 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
  • Expanding regional and special interest groups & branches
  • Increasing member benefits 
  • Engaging in C/MFT research in Canada
  • Launching the CACFT ParticipatorJournal
  • Working with post-graduate programs to develop a common set of standards for accrediting programs which train future C/MFT’s
  • Creating opportunities for our members to network and connect

Fondée en 1995 afin de promouvoir la profession et la pratique de la thérapie de couple 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 professionnelles de la santé mentale qui souhaitent travailler avec une perspective systémique sont encouragés à approfondir leurs connaissances et leur formation en devenant étudiantes, affiliées ou membre associées de l'ACTCF.

Un conseil d'administration bénévole dévoué venant de tout le Canada dirige l’ACTCF.

Les priorités du conseil

  • 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
  • Créer des opportunités pour nos membres de réseauter et de se connecte
