OCAN Community of Interest

The Ontario Common Assessment of Need (OCAN) is the evidenced-based, standardized assessment for the community mental health sector. OCAN promotes a consumer/client driven approach with the inclusion of a self-assessment. The tool supports conversations with consumers about their strengths, needs, and actions to address their unmet needs.

The OCAN Community of Interest is co-led by Canadian Mental Health Association, Peel, and Community Care Information Management (CCIM) with the support of EENet.
