Employment prospects for psychologists are very good in Canada. The government predicts that there will be too few jobseekers to fill vacancies in this profession in the near future. A doctorate is usually required to work in this occupation. For a therapist (who is not a psychiatrist or psychologist), salaries depend partly on education and training, as well as clinical specialization.
Psychotherapists are employed by a variety of public and private institutions, and they also work in private practice.
