Message from the CEO

PRI is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equal opportunity. We are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the AODA.

Who We Are

Pine River Institute is committed to helping adolescents struggling with addictive behaviours, frequently combined with other mental health challenges. By fostering maturity in a family-centred program, we help young people get their lives, their relationships, and their futures back on track. We are dedicated to treatment excellence, research and evaluation, continuous improvement, and the exchange of knowledge.

Pine River’s population is steeped in diversity – cultural, religious, economic, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, family formation and ability. We are committed to providing staff, students, and families a safe and inclusive environment in which to work, learn, and grow. This includes a focus on creating positive conditions which are embedded in PRI’s policies and procedures and comply with statutory requirements.

Accessibility Plan

Pine River Institute is committed to fulfilling our requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. This accessibility plan outlines the steps we are taking to ensure we play our role in making Ontario an accessible province. This plan is continually expanding and will be updated at least every 5 years as our strategy evolves.
