CSGTA - CASC Supervisors of the Greater Toronto Area (formerly TIPE - the Toronto Institute for Pastoral Education) offers courses in Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) in a variety of centres in hospitals in the Metro Toronto Area (Canada).
These programs are offered in affiliation with the Toronto School of Theology (TST) and may be taken for credit in conjunction with TST degree programs.
All our programs are recognized by the The Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC).
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is intended to assist clergy, candidates for ministry, and pastoral care workers to develop a pastoral identity as well appropriate skills in the delivery of pastoral care
We offer CPE units in a number of modalities including extended (part-time), full-time, and full-year residencies.
CPE courses are "clinical" insofar as the participants engage in pastoral ministry under supervision.
This experiential process follows the guidelines of the handbook of the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care.
The following CPE courses are currently receiving applications.
Before applying, please review the requirements listed on the registration page.
Space is limited and courses may fill up before the application deadline. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
