    Understanding Opioids:
    Methods for Prevention & Response

    More and more people are being poisoned by opioids. We need all hands on deck to turn that around.

    Learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose, including how to administer naloxone, a life-saving medication that can help temporarily reverse an opioid overdose. We will also cover concepts that impact opioid use, related harms, and the scope of opioid-related issues within the Canadian and local context. Participants will receive further information and resources on how to apply what they learn in various settings.

    The CAT (Cultural Awareness Training) sessions are meant to provide an awareness about Indigenous people in Canada. Participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge, skills of the history, experiences, and events which have influenced the relationship of Indigenous people in Canada.

    The Indigenous population in Canada is the fastest growing population, the youngest, but also the most overrepresented population in the justice and child welfare systems. The goal of this workshop is to develop a knowledge base on Indigenous lived experiences and be able to support those individuals who are seeking your help and/or support.
