Every year, more than one million Ontarians experience a mental health or addiction issue, leading to serious impacts on their quality of life and contributing to clear consequences for the province’s economic productivity. Currently, services are fragmented throughout the system with significant barriers to access and inconsistent quality, leading to people often turning to emergency departments—in many cases, only after reaching a crisis point.

Join Canadian Club Toronto on March 5 when Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, discusses Ontario’s new plan to build a comprehensive and connected mental health and addictions system and its significance to the province’s extensive efforts to end hallway health care.
