    Oct 08, 2020 | Mental Health Commission of Canada

    In collaboration with CSA Group (a global leader in standards development), the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), has championed the development of the CSA Z2003:20 Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students Standard.

    Created by the CSA Technical Committee the voluntary Standard is the first of its kind in the world, building on the exceptional work of Canada’s post-secondary institutions and seeks to inspire further actions through principle-led approaches. The standard is meant to promote and strengthen student mental health and well-being to support student success.

    The MHCC has also introduced a Starter Kit, with supportive resources for institutions to get started aligning their efforts with the Standard:
