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 Operational Stress Injuries (OSIs) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often may be seeking or require connections and resources of their own.  


OSI-CAN has a program created to provide financial aid to those who require the assistance of a service dog in overcoming the long-term effects of Operational Stress Injuries / Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other related issues.


If you are a public safety personnel or veteran in need of support, you can contact us to be connected with a qualified counsellor. We also work with practicum therapists who can offer timely assistance and help you find long-term support. If you are in crisis or require immediate counselling support while seeking long-term help, please don't hesitate to call us.
