Services are also made possible by funding from the governments of Quebec, Nunavut and the City of Ottawa — as well as by generous donors in the community. CHEO hosts a number of provincial programs including Better Outcomes Registry & Network Ontario, Newborn Screening Ontario, and Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health.
