The Canadian Group Psychotherapy Foundation (CGPF) aims to promote education, training, and research regarding group psychotherapy as an effective, economical, and transformative means of psychological treatment.  Established in 1992, the Foundation has developed a base of funding through the generous donations of members of the Canadian Group Psychotherapy Association and other interested individuals.

Group psychotherapy is a well- established mode of interpersonal learning and psychological treatment, promoting enhanced communication, shared support and often behavior change and personal growth. Core principles of group psychotherapy are also applied as effective mechanisms of the communication process and change in non-clinical contexts, such as organization and community development.
