Funding increases and decreases

Funding for CAMH

Ontario government commits funding on January 30th, 2019:

“When CAMH’s new facilities are completed, patients and their families will benefit from better integrated mental health and addictions care in a modern and therapeutic space,” said Elliott. “This is also exciting news as important research and education in mental health will also take place in these new buildings. We look forward to the completion of these projects as we continue to build a comprehensive and connected mental health and addictions system in Ontario.”

  • When completed, CAMH’s two new hospital buildings will add approximately 600,000 sq. ft. of new space. [Bulletin note: Construction began in 2017.]
