Recognizing the Impact of Your Advocacy

We are very pleased to introduce the Yorkville Referral Program (YRP) for graduates of our Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) program. 

As you likely know, the demand for skilled mental health professionals has never been higher. This past year, 76% of our students had post-graduation employment discussions with their practicum supervisors. 

The need is real. 

At Yorkville University, we offer two truly unique programs for those motivated to make a difference in people’s lives. The MACP program is designed for empathetic change-makers and is Canada’s leading online Counselling Psychology Degree. Our Doctor of Counselling and Psychotherapy (DCP) program is the highest degree credential in your field. Graduates can go on to further their practice, mentor and supervise other counsellors, and strive for a more purposeful pathway to leadership.  

Our mission is to identify and support those best suited for these critical roles with our MACP and DCP programs. This referral program recognizes the impact of your advocacy on meeting the need for mental health professionals. 

As a sign of our gratitude for referring a family member, friend, or colleague, we will provide you with a $250 Everything Gift Card upon the referred student’s completion of one (1) full term of courses in the MACP Program or DCP Program, as applicable. You are eligible to receive a maximum of two (2) Everything Gift Cards per calendar year. To qualify for the program, the referred student must not have previously applied, been referred, or admitted to the referred program at Yorkville. Terms and Conditions apply. 

If you know someone you believe can benefit from our MACP and DCP program, simply fill out the form below. We will send you and your referee emails with more information. 

Please ensure that the email address you provide is accurate. If the email address is incorrect or invalid, Yorkville may not be able to send you the incentive or notify you about any updates or changes to the program. 

Thank you for your referral. We have sent you an email with confirmation of your submission and information on next steps. We have also sent an email to your referee to talk about their next steps.
