City Urging Consultation for Overdose Sites

Overdose Site

Council has approved sending a letter to the Interior Health Authority regarding the need for consultation when planning for an OPS.

"Council requests that the community engagement process include all properties within a 120 metre radius of the proposed facility and that IHA submit a report to council for its information," states the letter.

"We appreciate that IHA is taking steps to help address the public health overdose emergency. Council would like to ensure that the interests of the surrounding community are considered in the siting of any overdose prevention site."
