Peer Support Groups
OSI-CAN provides Community-based Peer Support Groups for our target demographic, Military/Veteran members and Public Safety Personnel (Police, Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Corrections, Healthcare). Our groups address the challenges of OSI/PTSI through the neutrality of safe spaces and free, confidential, lived experience support. No diagnosis is required, just the courage to attend and find helpful information and resources.
Some peer support group meetings are conducted via Zoom and others are held in-person. Please contact a support group leader near you to request or receive an invite if you wish to attend. If there is no group near you, you may choose any available group from the list below.
For further information, please contact one of our Provincial Coordinators at: or call 250-251-1653
