Every year, 60,000 Canadians die due to substance use, substance use disorders, and related harms. This is an unacceptable fact that cannot continue. Together, we can make change. That’s why CAPSA is asking you to add your name to this petition.
We are calling on the Minister of Health for Canada, the Honourable Patty Hajdu, to enact all possible legislation and policy changes to support the well-being of people who use substances. Canadians are seeking policy focused on all forms of increased wellness for people using substances and their families. In addition, we recommend a complete review of all policies that people using substances have declared as being harmful to them.
Please add your name to the petition and share it on social media to show your support for those affected by substance use disorder on their pathway to wellness.
