The Canadian Institute for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (CIOCD) is dedicated to improving the quality and accessibility of evidence based specialized clinical treatments for children, adolescents, and adults suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) across Canada as well as internationally. The global need for dissemination of expertise and additional resources to effectively assess and treat OCD is urgent.

CIOCD Programs:

A. The 100% Canadian Affiliate Outreach Educational Program (AEOP) national network is comprised of exclusively Canadian professional members with outreach and collaborations across Canada. Educational and training programs to improve early detection and intervention are offered to professionals.

The AEOP is currently completing a comprehensive national survey of services and training for OCD across Canada to inform educational and intervention initiatives.

Please see the Public Page for list of services for OCD and related disorders across Canada.

B. The CIOCD International Accreditation Task Force (ATF) comprises experts on specialized treatments for OCD and related disorders through the lifespan (pediatric, youth, and adult) representing 21 nations. (Please see News Releases on this page, and the Accreditation Page for further information and list of ATF members)

C. The Scientific Advisory Committee includes national and international OCD experts and other professionals.

D. The Outreach and Development Committee is headed by dedicated collaborators, including professionals, community leaders, and national groups. OCD sufferers and their families are actively involved with the Institute. New participants are welcome.


Your gift can change the life of persons suffering from OCD.
