CASA's Vision, Mission and Values

Our Vision

A community where all children, youth and their families are provided with timely mental health care and empowered to thrive.

Our Mission

To build resilience through holistic, evidence-informed and compassionate care, and to advocate for children, youth and families with mental illness.


Our Values

Community: We believe each person’s community is unique, and is needed to support the mental health and well-being of those we serve.

Child-centred and family-inclusive care: As partners in care, we build services around the specific needs of each child and family.

Collaboration: We work together to better serve children, youth and families.

Equity, diversity and inclusion: We create a culturally safe environment that acknowledges and respects the lived experience of every person and community.

Outcomes-based accountability: We commit to and deliver effective outcomes as both a care provider and employer.

Cross-Cultural Understanding with a Strong Focus on Indigenous Ways 

CASA values, and is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion, but acknowledge we have work to do. CASA has identified cross-cultural understanding with a strong focus on Indigenous ways as an operational priority for the 2020-2021 year. This work will include an openness to discuss and identify areas of need, and it will inform and enhance our cultural competency at CASA.
