Who We Are

We are one of Canada’s leading treatment services provider for workplace mental health. We have the country’s top network of workplace psychiatrists and psychotherapists, trained to provide focused assessments and treatment plans that help an employee recover and return to work.

Our treatment is not just words on paper. It happens. Our specialists consult directly with the employee’s family physician to ensure the treatment is discussed and activated quickly.

What We Do

Employee absences due to mental health are a common challenge for employers. The traditional treatment path for mental illness is slow and unpredictable. Delayed treatment not only results in significantly greater costs and extended disruptions for the workplace—it means a valued employee suffers much longer than necessary.

This is why we created our Medaca TeamCare™ model —a collaborative, revolutionary approach to managing and treating mental illness.

How It Works


Supporting employees with best-in-class

In the workplace Employees may self-identify as requiring mental health support to their employer. With the permission of the employee, we can intervene.


Early & effective treatment

We see employees while they are still at work or in the early stages of absence or disability. Employees gain prompt access to mental health treatment through top psychiatrists & psychotherapists in just 9 business days. Traditional wait times for psychiatrists without Medaca are 6-12 months.


Coordinate treatment & see it through

Medaca psychiatrists & psychotherapists work with the family physician to confirm appropriate treatment and, work together with the insurer and employer. This keeps an employee healthy and productive on the job or helps those absent recover and return to work quickly.


Our Results

Supporting employees with early access to psychiatrists and effective treatment has proven to save our clients over $5 million in DLR & Direct Disability Cost Savings per 100 referrals.

We’ve reduced claim duration by 28% and increased claims resolutions by 18% during COVID-19. With Medaca on-board, 86% of employees return to work before moving to long-term disability.

This doesn’t include reduction in costs related to presenteeism, absenteeism and loss of productivity in the workplace.

And remember, disability is not simply about cost. It’s about organizational performance and profitability. Thirty-one percent of employers today say mental health is having a severe or significant impact on profitability in the COVID era.¹
