MHCC Strategic Plan 2021 – 2031

In Canada, more than 1.6 million people have an unmet need for mental health care, and one in two have experienced a delay in accessing services (or know someone who has).

Our plan for doing so sets out three strategic objectives:

  • Inquire
  • Inspire
  • Improve
