Canadian Psychology Sites

Canada has a long history of excellence in scientific psychology (e.g., Donald Hebb, who developed what is know known as the Hebbian synapse; Brenda Milner, renowned for her research with amnesic patient HM; Endul Tulving and Gus Craik, leaders in the science of memory; Lee Brooks and Alan Paivio, famed for foundational research on imagery and memory). According to a recent report, Canada ranks third in the world rankings of highly cited papers in psychology and neuroscience (behind the USA and UK, both of which have much larger populations).  Canada has 49 universities that include psychology and/or counselling departments.  Below are links that may be useful to students studying psychology in Canada (as well as to those living elsewhere who are considering coming to Canada for further studies).
