ECHO Canada Programs

The ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) model™ creates knowledge-sharing networks through multipoint video conferencing. These virtual communities of practice are led by interdisciplinary, specialist 'hubs,' that join with participants (spokes) to share knowledge and best practices. ECHO was established in Canada in Ontario in 2014 ( A training Superhub was established in Toronto, Ontario at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and University Health Network in 2017. Since then, ECHOs have been established across many provinces and territories across Canada, in addition to emerging ECHOs that are national in scope.
