B.C. psychology regulator warns priest is not registered to practise


By The Canadian Press on June 13, 2018.

VANCOUVER – The College of Psychologists of British Columbia is warning that a Catholic priest is not registered to practise psychology in the province.

The college says it issued the warning about Rev. Lucien Larre of Coquitlam, B.C., in the interest in public safety after it became aware of potentially misleading information provided to the public about the man’s credentials.

Court documents show Larre was suspended by the college in 2006, pending an investigation into complaints concerning his competence in connection with the preparation of certain psychological assessments.

His registration was cancelled Jan. 1, 2008, after he chose not to renew it during the suspension and also agreed not to apply for reinstatement.

The college says Larre is prohibited from working or practising in British Columbia as either a “registered psychologist” or “psychologist” and must not use either title to describe his work.

Larre could not immediately be reached for comment.
