(Direct link | Source: Health Canada)


Supervised consumption sites (SCS) are a key element to an evidence-based treatment approach that saves countless lives across Canada. The services they offer not only ensure the health and safety of vulnerable communities, but also connects them to social supports and vital ancillary services. Extensive research has validated their positive impact, including in the following ways:

  • Reduced HIV risk behavior
  • Increased use of addiction services
  • Improvement of public order
  • Reduced risk of overdose
  • Safety for women who use substances
  • No increase in drug use or crime
