Monthly giving provides an easy, convenient and cost-effective way to help those living with mental illness. Change Agents provide consistent and reliable funds toward the most urgent needs of the hospital–helping improve the quality of care provided at CAMH, and to develop the next generation of treatments. But being a Change Agent is more than just a monthly gift. It’s a commitment to stopping mental illness from destroying lives. It is speaking up for those who can’t and shattering the stigma around mental illness. It’s a message of hope to everyone affected that they will always have the support they need to transform their lives for the better. Become a Change Agent today!

Under the provisions of Payments Canada’s Rule H1, if a PAD is returned due to insufficient funds, CAMH Foundation may re-attempt to process the payment once, and this must be done within 30 days of the original transaction date for the same amount as the original transaction. CAMH Foundation cannot charge service fees.
Payments Canada’s mandate does not extend to service fees that may be charged by financial institutions, so this is not addressed in Rule H1. You will need to discuss the matter with your financial institution. In accordance with CRA regulations, under no circumstance can CAMH reimburse you for NSF fees charged by your financial institution.
