Short description:
Our goals are: to develop in Canada a network of harm reduction workers, agencies, organisations, individuals and groups of individuals, including people with current drug use experience, for the purpose of exchanging information and providing mutual support;to educate the public, politicians, legislators and the media about the efficacy and legitimacy of Harm Reduction for redressing the consequences of the use and distribution of illicit drugs; to ensure that drug policies in Canada exemplify true Harm Reduction; to work collaboratively to end the war on drugs and on the people who use them. Recent accomplishments: Cross-Canada research on harm reduction programs and services in smaller Canadian cities; intensive participation in development of national and provincial (Ontario) responses to Hepatitis C; participation in the development of national, provincial (Ontario) and municipal (Toronto) drug frameworks and strategies; etc.
