How can I help?

Get the facts

There are many supervised consumption sites in operation across the province, country, and globe. Research and data have proven the benefits of these sites, not only for individuals who use drugs, but for the wellbeing of communities at large. Still, many people don’t realize the positive impact safe health sites can have on communities affected by addiction and overdose. So check out our site to help separate the fears from the facts.

Get involved

There will be opportunities to help make harm-reduction kits and to participate in community clean ups. Sign up when these opportunities arise.
