Service areas

Lead child and youth mental health agencies will be responsible for making sure children, youth and families are able to find the core services described in the Program Guidelines and Requirements: Core Services and Key Processes. The lead agencies in the 33 service areas listed below will be responsible for analyzing, planning, funding and monitoring and evaluating the child and youth mental health services in their areas.

As of December 2015, lead agencies have been identified in 31 of the 33 service areas. Plans are underway in the remaining two service areas.

Service areas were determined by the ministry after a thorough review that included assessing Statistics Canada’s census divisions. These divisions provided demographic data that support the planning and evaluation of services. Service areas were also determined by the projected population of children and youth in each area.
