The CAMH Constituency Council is a province-wide voluntary council made up of 50-70 stakeholders, tasked with providing advice, insight, and feedback to the organization, its strategic plan and its Board of Trustees.
The Council was created in 1998 at the time of the formation of CAMH and has met twice a year, every year, since the beginning. The group has been a great resource for the organization to discuss developments at the hospital, share information and resources with local communities, and guide the work of CAMH as we brought together the four founding organizations into one.
In January 2013, a dedicated working group of 15 Constituency members began meeting on a regular basis to revise the mandate and Terms of Reference for the Constituency Council, including improvements to our communications, expectations of membership, and a focus on regional representation and the makeup of the group. The revised model was endorsed in June of 2013. The Council was recognized as an Accreditation Canada Leading Practice in 2016.
