The National Treatment Indicators Working Group

The NTI project was established in 2009 with the goal of collecting consistent information about substance use treatment across jurisdictions to fill information gaps and help improve the quality, range and accessibility of treatment in Canada. Each year, data from publicly funded substance use treatment services are analyzed at the provincial/territorial level according to standardized NTI definitions and data-collection protocols and then provided to CCSA.
