Please join us in commemorating International Overdose Awareness Day. From 2 to 5:30pm, community organizations will host educational booths with information about: supports for people who use substances and their loved ones, harm reduction services, and the harms that people who use substances face due to criminalization and the poisoned drug supply. Starting at 6pm speakers will share their lived and living experience of how substance use has impacted their lives. We will also have a candlelight vigil to honour people our community has lost to the drug poisoning crisis.

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

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
