Today, we met with advocates and people with lived experience to hear their concerns.
We heard some heart-wrenching stories of suffering and loss and we can’t forget that the overdose crisis is impacting people’s lives in communities across the province.
As in all communities, we are committed to keeping communication open with our partners – including community members, advocates, community service agencies, health care providers and the City of Maple Ridge – to ensure appropriate services are in place to support people at risk of overdose.
Since the beginning of the overdose crisis, we have worked with all of our partners to provide services that save lives and connect people to treatment options. We will continue our work with communities across the Fraser Health Authority to deal with this crisis.
