Report on Community Support
In 2013, CSCS volunteers visited door-to-door to residences and businesses in Ottawa's ByWard Market neighbourhood, speaking with nearly 200 people who live and work in an area of the city most affected by problematic drug use. We provided information on supervised consumption sites and gathered feedback on a short questionnaire, which is summarized in this report.
Get the facts and bust the myths! These one-page flyers address some of the most common misconceptions about supervised consumption sites.

Petition to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario
Provincial governments in B.C. and Quebec have already shown their support for the creation of supervised drug consumption sites; we urge the government of Ontario to do the same.
Download this petition, collect as many signatures as you can, and return it to us at one of our meetings or events. We'll deliver all collected signatures to an MPP for presentation in the Legislature.
The Minister of Health must hear the message that the people of Ottawa demand action on the epidemic of HIV and Hepatitis C among drug users in our city.
