OSI-CAN is an Operational Stress Injury/Post Traumatic Stress Support Initiative.
Initially created in January 2016 as a partnership between the Canadian Mental Health Association (SK) and The Royal Canadian Legion (Saskatchewan Command). In 2019, the program expanded to include Manitoba and the Alberta A.S.K Peer Support Groups, now operating more than 20 groups across the three provinces.

OSI-CAN offers Peer Support Groups, Family Support Groups, assistance with service dog acquisition and referrals to equine therapy programs. Our support groups provide a free, safe,
confidential, non-judgemental environment where we can talk openly about mental health.

Our mission is to inspire hope and contribute to the continuous well-being and recovery process of Veterans and Front Line Protectors across Canada.


We seek to empower and encourage them to strive for recovery through peer and professional support while creating greater public awareness.

We at OSI-CAN do not see PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as a Disorder, we see it as an Injury you can recover from.  If you are suffering from the symptoms of an Occupational or Operational Stress Injury, then a PTSD or PTSI diagnosis is not required to get our help
