Award for Innovation in Mental Health and Addictions Care


In February 2022, Canada’s Premiers announced the Council of the Federation 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 challenges continue to impact many Canadians. Premiers created this award to highlight the innovative work individuals and organizations are doing to promote wellness across the country.

Each award recipient will receive a certificate, signed by the Premier of their province or territory, as well as a $5,000 prize to advance the awarded initiative and foster further innovation. This award will provide recognition and support for non-governmental, community, private sector, academic, and Indigenous-led initiatives.

Award recipients will be announced in summer 2022.
