Peer Support Groups

OSI Can2.jpg

OSI-CAN provides Community-based Peer Support Groups for our target demographic, Military/Veteran members and Public Safety Personnel (Police, Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Corrections, Healthcare). Our groups address the challenges of OSI/PTSI through the neutrality of safe spaces and free, confidential, lived experience support. No diagnosis is required, just the courage to attend and find helpful information and resources.

Many of our groups have now transitioned back to in-person, however, each group is also offering a hybrid model. This means that if you choose to attend you can register to visit a physical location or you can join through our zoom platform by contacting our Provincial Service Coordinator directly through the link below.
