Current, Timely, Accurate Data Reporting

ConnexOntario maintains a centralized, up-to-date, and accurate database of detailed drug, alcohol, problem gambling, and mental health treatment service information.

This information includes:

  • where the service is located
  • how to access the service
  • how long the wait to access the service may be

Information contained in the ConnexOntario database is used for planning purposes by healthcare professionals, and health system planners, managers, and stewards in the province of Ontario.
