Canada’s Premiers are pleased to announce the Council of the Federation (COF) Award for Innovation in Mental Health and Addictions Care. Presented in each province and territory for initiatives that positively impact mental health and addictions care, this one-time award will recognize and support individuals and organizations excelling in the field.

Mental health and addictions are complex issues that impact many Canadians. The steps taken to protect Canadians from COVID-19 have brought greater focus to these issues. Innovation in the practice and knowledge regarding mental health and addictions care can benefit from a more collaborative approach by provinces and territories, and those who undertake that work should be recognized and celebrated.

Each province and territory will issue one award valued at $5,000.

The award will recognize and support individuals and organizations who are excelling in the field of mental health and addictions care. The aim is to reward achievement and innovation and encourage others in the field to be innovative in their work. All recipients will be recognized nationally and used as examples to promote innovation and collaboration across Canada. The awards objective is to highlight innovation in non-governmental, private, and academic sectors. It is not meant to recognize or reward programs or services that are wholly government funded and run.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2022 award. The deadline for nominations is June 30, 2022.
