The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) is a catalyst for improving the mental health system and changing the attitudes and behaviours of Canadians around mental health issues. Through its unique mandate from Health Canada, the MHCC brings together leaders and organizations from across the country to accelerate these changes. In the fall of 2020, the MHCC, in collaboration with CSA Group and with funding support from Bell Let’s Talk, The Rossy Foundation and RBC Foundation, released the CSA Z2003:20 Mental health and well-being for post-secondary students. This Standard — the first of its kind in the world — is a set of flexible, voluntary guidelines that allow post-secondary institutions to reaffirm their commitment to promote positive student mental health and well-being, and aspire for further actions through principle-led approaches. The MHCC is committed to supporting institutions in working with the Standard by offering learning opportunities and resources such as the Starter Kit.
