In 2002 the National Steering Committee on Patient Safety published the report Building a Safer System.  The report outlined a national, integrated strategy for improving patient safety in the Canadian healthcare system which named establishing the Canadian Patient Safety Institute as its number one recommendation. As a result of this work, Health Canada supported the creation and the funding of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute.   Read the report, Building a Safer System, to see where CPSI’s journey to create a safer healthcare system began.​
