Supervised Consumption Services Now!

WHEREAS supervised consumption services and a broader harm reduction strategy are proven to reduce harm from addictions for individuals and communities, while improving access to health and social services;

AND WHEREAS deaths relating to substance misuse have reached epidemic levels in British Columbia, demanding coordinated and concerted action by all levels of government;

THEREFORE WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, call on the Government of British Columbia, through the Ministry of Health and the Vancouver Island Health Authority, to commit multi-year operating funds to establish supervised consumption services in the Capital Region without delay;

AND WE FURTHER call on the Government of Canada to support the establishment of supervised consumption services in British Columbia's Capital Region by expediting regulatory approval of these life-saving health services.
