Community of Interest (CoI): Health Equity Impact Assessment

The purpose of the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) CoI is to build evidence on the effectiveness of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's HEIA tool. Our goal is to increase the application of HEIA to reduce inequities for access, use and outcomes of mental health and addictions care in Ontario.

This Community of Interest is intended for researchers, service providers, policymakers and systems planners who are working on health equity issues for people living with mental health and addictions problems.

New members are welcome. To start a discussion, reply to a post, or share resources you will need to become a member. To join this Community of Interest please send a request to

HEIA Champion Organization Health Nexus ( have produced an introductory video on the use of the Health Equity Impact Assessment Tool, working through the 5 steps and what to consider.
