OASP History

The Ontario Suicide Prevention Network (OSPN) was incorporated in 1996 by a group of volunteers from many sectors in the community who believed that there was a need for a provincial body to link communities, agencies, school and people to start talking about suicide.

In 2010 OSPN became OASP (Ontario Association of Suicide Prevention)
Today OASP still exists with a membership of over 250 community minded citizens who want to talk and learn what they can about suicide.

OASP continues with a volunteer Board of Directors and many of the values in 1996 still hold true today.

OASP is a provincial body that links communities, organizations and individuals in Ontario by supporting, advocating for and encouraging the development of suicide prevention, intervention and postvention activities.
