Support Group Meeting

OSI-CAN Peer Support Groups

OSI-CAN provides Peer Support Groups for our target demographic; Military and Public Safety Personnel. Occupational Stress Injuries / Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can occur when a person directly experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. This can also happen with repeated exposure to traumatic situations and details.

Happy family

Adult Family & Friends of OSI


OSI-CAN provides peer groups that aid in the recovery and resiliency of the family as a whole. At times, adult family and friends of those affected by Occupational Stress Injuries (OSIs) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often may be seeking or require connections and resources of their own.


Equine Assisted Therapy

OSI-CAN is proud to provide Equine Assisted Therapy Programs across the Province in partnership with qualified providers, aiding in the recovery of Occupational Stress Injuries (OSIs) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

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
