The Initial Commission established two Technical Advisory Groups in September 2020 - one focused on population level data and the other on mental health and addiction (MHA) service level data - to provide specialist advice and recommendations in the data phase of this work. Their work included assessing available data sources, shortlisting potential indicators and measures, and identifying information gaps. Their work was completed in January 2021. You can read or download the data phase report [PDF, 788 KB].
