Join us from 12-3 pm for food, community, and education on the drug toxicity crisis. Learn about the importance of safe consumption services and how they keep our neighbours safe.

We’ll have food and drinks, overdose and drug education, interactive naloxone training, a memorial banner-making activity, on-site grief support, along with a raffle and prizes! We’ll also be engaging with community members about how to look out for our neighbours who are unhoused, safely pick up discarded harm reduction supplies, and advocate for systemic change.

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.
