    I know that Canada does not offer the PsyD, but what about welcoming them as clinicians? For example, do Canadian internships really accept PsyDs from the US? Is there any movement to introduce the PsyD in Canada?

    There's been talk about it, but nothings really happened.

    I've looked into this too, and from what I've found, a PsyD isn't widely accepted or respected here unfortunately. As for internships, they say that they accept people in PsyD programs, but if they have a choice of someone in a PsyD and someone in a clinical Ph.D, the Ph.D student will win hands down.
