The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) is situated on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin people. The MHCC is a non-profit organization created to focus national attention on mental health issues and to work to improve the health and social outcomes of people living with mental illness and promote mental wellbeing. Through its unique mandate from the Government of Canada, the MHCC supports federal, provincial, and territorial governments as well as organizations in the implementation of sound public policy.


Funded by Health Canada, the MHCC convenes stakeholders and seeks to inspire collective action. Each of our initiatives and projects are led by experts from across the country who bring a variety of perspectives and experience to the table. Consulting with people who have experience living with a mental health problem or illness and their families is a key aspect in all of the MHCC’s work.

The MHCC provides its recommendations to governments, service providers, community leaders and many others, and works with these partners to improve the quality of and access to mental health care.
