50 years of dedication to the well-being of children and youth.

Youthdale’s team of highly skilled and dedicated psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, occupational therapists, child and youth workers, nurses, and social workers have worked together to meet the complex mental health needs of children, youth and emerging adults, collaborating with their families every step of the way.

We are committed to accountability and ongoing learning as we strive to do better moving forward.

Out of deep respect for Indigenous peoples of Canada, Youthdale recognizes that its work, and the work of its community partners take place on traditional Indigenous territories across the province. We are thankful to be able to work and live in these territories.

The events of 2020, including the senseless murder of George Floyd, the growing Anti-Black racism protests, and the impact of COVID on marginalized populations—particularly among children, youth and families with mental health needs—became a catalyst for Youthdale staff, leadership, and the Board of Directors to refocus and prioritize our strategic and operational commitments to diversity and inclusion.

We respect and welcome all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, religious or ethical values system, national origin, political beliefs, or financial circumstances.
