August 31st is International Overdose Awareness Day
We invite you to join us for vigil of hope and remembrance. In honour of those we have lost and those in our community that are still struggling we will gather for a time of remembrance, celebration and mourning.

We will gather first to share a meal together as friends and neighbours followed by our vigil in memory of lost loved ones.
Speakers from our community that have been directly impacted by the toxic drug crisis will be sharing their stories, followed by prayers, song a moment of silence and candlelight vigil in memory of those we lost.
If you would like to participate in our empty chair project or have your loved one’s photo added to our photo banner email their photo and name to

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.
