Thank you for supporting safer consumption sites in Ottawa

Since 2011, the Campaign for Safer Consumption Sites in Ottawa has advocated for safer, healthier services for people who use drugs in our community. Over the years, we've had the pleasure to engage with so many of you at events we've hosted and participated in, as well as through our website and social media. The response to our campaign has been overwhelmingly supportive – from the thousands of signatures on our paper and online petitions, to the hundreds of emails sent to the mayor, city councillors, and health ministers.

The actions we've taken together have helped pave the way for the establishment of multiple supervised injection services in Ottawa. Your show of support has demonstrated to politicians and policy makers that when it comes to public health, the vast majority of people in our city believe in harm reduction and evidence-based policies.

Thank you for joining us in our campaign, and continuing to stand up for the dignity and well-being of people who use drugs. Together we can build healthier and safer communities for everyone.
