“designated facility” means a psychiatric facility, psychiatric unit or observation unit in the province. Bill 163 was passed in 2016 and creates the presumption that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) diagnosed in first responders is work-related. The result is faster access to Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) benefits for those who need them, with the goal of improving recovery. A person can only be admitted to Canada if the person`s mental disorder harms or harms others or is significantly deteriorating by them. In some provinces, legislation requires that the person need psychiatric treatment. In provinces that do not have this exclusion, it is possible to detain people with incurable disorders such as antisocial personality disorder, although this is not common in practice.

For example, in British Columbia, the medical director of a psychiatric facility consents to psychiatric treatment in cases where an interned patient refuses. This article defines the term mental disorder as used throughout the Criminal Code. The definition is very precise and has important connotations elsewhere in the Criminal Code, particularly in article 16 as well as article 672.38, which establishes the examination board to deal with persons who are not criminally responsible on account of a mental disorder. (7) A patient admitted to an observation unit in accordance with paragraph 1 shall be transferred to a psychiatric facility or psychiatric department in the province within the prescribed time after receiving a second medical certificate in accordance with paragraph 2 from the head of the observation unit, unless the patient, (5) The director of a national psychiatric facility may admit a person authorized to transfer to the facility in accordance with subsection 4, if the director provides copies of the 2 medical certificates of the person in charge of the correctional institution, juvenile detention centre, prison or detention centre. 19 A person who applies for or applies for admission to a woman in a provincial psychiatric facility shall ensure that the person is accompanied by a close relative or a female person between the date of the application and the person is admitted to a provincial psychiatric facility.
It is a fundamental principle of the Canadian criminal justice system that a defendant must have the ability to understand that his or her conduct was reprehensible in order to be convicted of a crime. Article 16 of the Criminal Code provides that: (2) In the case of an order made under subsection (1), the person in charge of the prison, juvenile detention, prison or prison shall, in accordance with the order, arrange for the person to be transported to the psychiatric institution specified in the order and transmit copies of the medical certificates to the director of the State psychiatric institution. If a physician is unable to conduct an examination, a judge or, in some cases, a justice of the peace may order that the person be examined. In addition, a police officer may take the person to hospital for an outpatient examination if he or she has reason to believe that the person has a mental illness and will harm themselves or others. Some provinces allow a police officer to take a person for a psychiatric assessment if they believe the person is at risk of mental or physical deterioration.

There are 13 mental health laws in Canada because the ten provinces and three territories are responsible for their own health laws and services. There are fundamental similarities between Canadian mental health records, but there are clinically significant differences between them (Gray & O`Reilly, 2001).
All Canadian laws must comply with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which is part of the country`s constitution. In most Canadian provinces and territories, with the exception of the province of Quebec, legislation is based on common law; in Quebec, it is based on a civil code, as is the case in France. (ii) requires care, supervision and control in or by a designated facility to prevent significant mental or physical deterioration of the person or patient or to protect the person or patient or other persons; 12. The director of a provincial psychiatric facility shall ensure that no person with a mental disorder originating in a correctional system is admitted to a psychiatric facility, prison, prison or provincial institution under the jurisdiction and administration of Canada unless the Government of Canada, through or through an officer authorized to act on the person`s behalf, pay all costs for the care, treatment and maintenance of that person.
