Community Treatment Orders (CTOs) provide a legal means for society to involuntarily commit into treatment individuals with severe mental illnesses who are judged to be a risk to themselves or to society. CTOs aim to seek a balance between the rights of the affected individual and the rights of those people who may be affected by his/her actions. CTOs are included in many mental health acts in Canada and in other countries; in this province, CTOs were included in the Mental Health Care and Treatment Act of 2006. The legislation provides a legal means of enforcing treatment, and specifically medication compliance.
