Important Notice for Renewing and New Members of NBACT
Update on NB Legislation and Incentives to join NBACT
Our Licensed Counselling Therapists Act is now awaiting its 1st Reading in the NB Legislature. The Act states that the New Brunswick College of Licensed Counselling Therapists will commence on June 1st, 2017. Once the College begins, there will be a one-time application fee of $100.00, and a yearly membership fee. The Federation Working Group has decided that the one-time application fee of $100.00 for the college will be waived for applicants who are currently members of one of our three provincial associations: AFCONB, NBACT, and NBPCA.
Currently, NBACT is offering a renewal and new member rate of $100.00. A very important advantage of joining the association before May 15th, 2017 is that you will automatically qualify to become a member of the college, as outlined in the Licensed Counselling Therapists Act.
Joining one of our three provincial associations is currently the most important way that you can demonstrate to our NB government that you support the legislation of our profession. Our government continues to inquire about our membership numbers in our provincial associations!
