About the Project
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is Canada's largest mental health teaching hospital and one of the world's leading research centres in its field. Through the multi-phase transformation of its Queen Street West site, CAMH is turning what was once a walled institution into an inclusive, respectful, and dignified campus that helps break down stigma and better address the unique mental health needs of patients.
CAMH’s forensic mental health program currently operates out of an old, institutional building that was not built for modern concepts of forensic health care. Phase 1D includes the construction of a new building (the Secure Care and Recovery building) to support CAMH’s forensics services.
Phase 1D of CAMH’s forensic mental health program is the fourth and final part of the hospital’s broader redevelopment project.

Community And Green Benefits
The addition of new facilities at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) allows the hospital to continue to provide high-quality care and better address the unique mental health needs of patients.
- The CAMH 1D Redevelopment project is being delivered using a DBF model. Key benefits of a DBF model include significant risk transfer to the private sector over the life of the project agreement, greater cost and schedule certainty and greater potential for design and construction efficiencies and innovation.
- Based on precedent project experience, a DBF procurement model typically has delivered a value for money savings in the range of 10% to 15% compared to undertaking the same projects using traditional delivery models.
