Treatment Philosophy

  • Vanier's dedicated and competent multi-disciplinary staff provide a broad range of high quality services that are informed by research, best practices, innovation, feedback and evaluation.
  • We foster a climate of accountability through ethical decision-making, effective and efficient use of resources, professional development and continuous improvement.
  • We strive to deal with problems as early as possible building resilience to help children reach their full potential regardless of their vulnerabilities, building on strengths to help families reach their own goals.
  • We demonstrate leadership in the community, region and province, through advocacy, public education, professional training and collaboration with community partners to promote the needs of children and families, including the right of children to receive necessary mental health treatment.
  • We provide individualized programs which are flexible and responsive to the needs of each child and family.
  • We embrace the diversity that exists within families including differences in culture, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and provide our services without discrimination.
  • We respect the integrity of our clients and their right to make decisions that affect their lives.
  • We involve parents as active partners in all levels of the organization, from the treatment process to volunteering and governance.
