Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH)
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is a Toronto mental institution charged with serving gender-variant clients in the area. Under the direction of Ray Blanchard and Kenneth Zucker, it has become widely known as one of the most notorious facilities in the world in terms of controlling access to medical services for sex and gender minorities.

laws that would limit the immigration and marriage of the defective.
 During his tenure, foreign-born patients made up more than 50 percent of
the institutionalized population in Canada. 
As Katherine Wilson notes:
Christened with his name, the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry opened for business
in 1966. A young staff member recalls those early days:
