Pine River is a not-for-profit, fee-for-service program. We receive funding support from The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care via the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (TC LHIN).

Government-Funded Beds 

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provides financial support for Ontario adolescents who qualify for treatment at Pine River Institute. Families are responsible for a monthly fee of $650 (effective April 1, 2015). This fee covers program costs not covered by our government funding, for example, parent retreats, transportation, and activity fees. 

Private Pay Beds 

Our non-funded beds are available at the rate of $460/day (effective April 1, 2016) including the day of admission and the day of discharge. 


The monthly Aftercare fee is $430.
