Public Health in partnership with the Waterloo Region Integrated Drugs Strategy are conducting a feasibility study on supervised injection services in Waterloo Region. A brief background document about the supervised injection services feasibility study is available for your information.

As part of the study, they are engaging a broad cross section of people who live, work, and go to school in Waterloo Region.

One way they are engaging the community is conducting information and consultation sessions with strategic groups that are interested in Public Health’s response to the opioid crisis or are affected in some way by the presence of supervised injection services in Waterloo Region.

As part of this process they would like to engage members of the Downtown Kitchener BIA to hear their perspective on the benefits of supervised injection services, any questions or concerns they may have and how to address them, geographic areas impacted, and service integration.

A consultation session will take place at the Downtown Kitchener BIA office on Wednesday November 29th at 10:00 am. We kindly ask that you RSVP to this session by Friday November 24th.
