UPCOMING

EVENTS

Waterloo Region UPstream Virtual (Re)Thinking Series!

(Re)Think Prohibition: Reducing Criminalization and Advancing Equity in Canadian Drug Policy

FEBRUARY 1 @ 7PM EST/5PM MST (zoom webinar)


Cost – Free


Canada's prohibitionist narcotic laws are 114 years old and are actively criminalizing certain substances and certain people. Decades of evidence indicates that criminalization via prohibition is expensive and harmful – and a clear barrier to eliminating Canada's chronic drug poisoning crisis that kills 19 people every day.


Join esteemed leaders from civil society and municipal government in a discussion of their upstream efforts to improve everyone's health, safety and well-being with drug laws and policies grounded in equity, and built for the 21st century.
