Ontario Drug Policy Symposium – Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police

May 31 @ 8:00 am June 1 @ 5:00 pm

Drug policy is complex, multifaceted and in the last thirty years it has become intertwined with criminal justice policy. With funding for health care coming from the provincial level and the response to drug challenges dealt with at the frontlines by law enforcement, health and social services, Ontario requires a coordinated strategic response to current and emerging drug concerns. Sound drug policy requires all partners coming together to learn from each other and identifying collective priorities to advance to the Government of Ontario. This Symposium brings together diverse voices from those involved in local drug response strategies, enforcement, the criminal justice system, diversion programs, harm reduction, alternative approaches, treatment and prevention efforts. This is the perfect event for police, health practitioners, social service providers, non-profit organizations and policy makers to come together and learn about drug response efforts underway across the province. Be part of shaping the future of Ontario drug policy.
