MCYS Service Regions and Service Areas
In 2014 – 2015, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) defined five Service Regions and thirty-three Children and Youth Mental Health (CYMH) Service Areas in Ontario.
We have used free and open source software (FOSS) to convert the Ontario government’s Shapefile archives of the geographic boundaries of these MCYS Service Regions and CYMH Service Areas into TopoJSON files that are convenient for visualizing these geographic bodies and their various characteristics (e.g. population, population density, rate of population growth, etc).

We have used D3-GEO to transform our TopoJSON files into (a sample of) area, regional, and provincial views of the MCYS Service Regions and CYMH Service Areas in Ontario:
