Baldev Mutta is the Chief Executive Officer of the Punjabi Community Health Services in Peel Region. He founded the Punjabi Community Health Services in July 1990 and was instrumental in making it an accredited, charitable and culturally appropriate organization. The organization now provides services in the areas of addictions, mental health, geriatric, settlement and a variety of other social programs and services to the South Asian community, with several branches across Canada and India.
He has developed an Integrated Holistic Service Delivery Model which encompasses the way services are to be provided to the community. As South Asian culture values “we” over “I”, the services also reflect the co-opting of the family into treatment rather than treating only the individual. This model also allows for the provision of services to be provided to the family at right time, right place and using the right intervention.
Baldev Mutta has received many community awards for his work on equity, community development, diversity management, and organizational change.
