I am looking to move to Canada in the near future from the UK. I currently work in a prison facilitating offending behaviour programmes (Sex Offender Treatment Programme and Thinking Skills Programme).

I have a First class honours Psychology degree and a Masters in Forensic psychology as well as being trained in administering WASI and WAIS (IQ assessment tools).

I am wondering what parts of my education would be recognised in Canada as I am interested in working towards becoming a fully chartered Forensic Psychologist. I know that over here after completing my Masters I would need to get a Trainee Forensic Psychologist position and would work under supervision for around 3-4 years before become fully chartered.

What is the route in Canada?
