As we mark the beginning of Mental Illness Awareness Week, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) held the official groundbreaking for the boldest phase yet of its Queen Street Redevelopment Project.

When construction is completed, the two new buildings, with 655,000 square feet of space, will have 235 new inpatient beds, a 24/7 Emergency Department, a 300-seat auditorium, a unique ‘therapeutic neighbourhood’ for patients, and much more.

The CAMH Phase 1C redevelopment project will see the construction of two modern buildings along Queen Street West in Toronto featuring inpatient and outpatient services for those most in need: people who are acutely ill as well as those experiencing the most complex forms of mental illness. The project will result in the construction of approximately 655,000 square feet of new build space, which will include:

  • 235 in-patient beds,
  • Ambulatory programs,
  • Relocation of the emergency department to the Queen Street site,
  • Research and educational facilities,
  • Information and resource facilities, and
  • Site improvements, including parks and green space improvements.

Construction began in October 2017 with an expected substantial completion date of spring 2020.
