I looked into the PhD in Counselling Psychology from UCN and it was technically impossible to use it for licensing in Canada. Even if it was accepted as a degree, it lacked supervision components and specific course work requirements. As someone stated, I would have a very hard time to get a supervisor to supervise me with this degree unless I pay for this. There are many private programs in Canada that do not lead to a degree but they can be used for licensing as they are aligned and approved. Maybe still 20K investment for a certificate but at least you can use it. The DL degree from Yorkville is about 40K but it is accredited by most of the recognized boards in Canada.
