Our Mission

The Affordable Therapy Network is an initiative to serve the needs of an overwhelmingly large population of people who would benefit from therapeutic support, but can’t afford it.  It serves a dual purpose of supporting the visibility and web-presence of psychotherapists, counsellors, or other practitioners offering their support services across Canada.

The Affordable Therapy Network is an initiative based on the Social Enterprise Model aimed towards increasing the social good.

Expanding across Canada

In Mid-November of 2020, we began our expansion of the Network from it’s Ontario-based home to reach provinces across Canada.

We are offering incentives for therapists who practice in provinces outside of Ontario to promote the growth of the site as we gain visibility across Canada.  These incentives include accommodated (reduced) listing fees and free group listings.

Our hope is to help clients from all across Canada connect with support that is within their means.  If you are a therapist who practices outside of Ontario, we would love to hear from you.

About Low-Cost and Sliding Scale Rates

The low-cost rate is in place in order to serve the mission of our site, reduce the stigma of financial barriers, and provide an option for those who would otherwise not be able to access therapy. 

While some clients who use our site require the low-cost rate (and we thank you for offering that!), many simply require an alternative to standard rates and are able to access our therapists sliding-scale fees.

Listing Fees

We are a self-funded Social Enterprise and therefore charge a listing fee to support the efforts and costs associated with running the website. 

Comparable initiatives in Canada receive their funding in several ways; by collecting a portion of session fees, charging for office space, charging a fee per referral, or charging clients a membership fee. 

Our model uses a subscription plan with no additional fees:

  • The Standard Listing Plan is a range between $19.50 – $24.75 + HST per month (varies by plan).  A minimum three month commitment is required.
  • Incentive (reduced) listing fees are available for therapists practicing outside Ontario – get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!

Who We are

The Affordable Therapy Network was founded by Social Service Worker, Katie McCowan, in 2016 out of Toronto, Ontario, to help bridge a gap in Mental Health Care accessibility. The development of the project has been an ongoing a collaboration with service users, peers, and professionals.

We started as a Grassroots initiative with a small number of therapists listed across Toronto, and have grown a lot since then!  We take user feedback to heart and continuously strive to make the Network as accessible as possible.
