I thought this government had gone as low as possible to imagine. I was
wrong. Taxing mental health services is.

***ATTENTION ALL CANADIAN PSYCHOLOGISTS AND OTHERS***
Mar 3, 2015
The Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) opposes the Federal Government
and Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) plan which will effectively tax mental
health services. One in five Canadians will have a mental health problem or
disorder in a given year and only about one-third of them reportedly seeks
and receives care. Budget 2013 included a measure that imposes sales tax on
certain psychological services that had previously been exempt. It was
unclear at the time what would be taxed and what would be exempt. A recent
CRA consultation process confirmed our fears that this new tax will make it
harder for Canadians to access care.
