Government Engagement Toolkit

Governments from coast to coast to coast have a direct interest in making investments that improve the mental health and wellness of people living in Canada. However, oftentimes governments are unaware of promising new initiatives in development or even those already being delivered. Likewise, the individuals, groups, and organizations involved in these initiatives are frequently unaware of the support that might be available to them from governments and effective means to engage them.

This toolkit is intended to support individuals, groups, or organizations in their efforts to secure government support in developing and delivering mental health services. Even if there is an awareness of the potential benefits of engaging governments, making the connections necessary to successfully secure government support can be a daunting task. This kit provides the strategies, guides, and tools that can be used to ensure that groups are best equipped in this endeavour.
