For decades, Spectra Helpline (Peel) and Distress Centres (Toronto) have individually championed and executed our aligned missions of ensuring every individual in need of emotional support or crisis intervention has access to life-sustaining care delivered by highly-trained volunteers supported by professional staff. After careful evaluation and thoughtful consideration, the boards of Spectra Helpline and Distress Centres unanimously voted to merge our respective organizations in an effort to Enhance the Breadth and Expand the Reach of the services that we provide individuals at risk and in their most vulnerable moments. As of May 2019, Spectra Helpline received Canada Revenue Agency confirmation of its merger with Toronto Distress Centres. DCOGT Peel is a non-profit, charitable organization that currently has 6 telephone-based inbound and outbound support services for the Peel populace.
