The PDS Panel was an opportunity for people with lived experience related to substance use to use their experiences to help inform local programs, policies, and initiatives. It was also an opportunity for organizations to get feedback on their activities and adapt them to better meet the needs of people with lived experience of substance use.

Over the course of a one-year pilot project (2017-18), we established the panel, which offered consulting services to PDS member organizations. This project was generously funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

The panel was later re-launched in 2022. Learn more here.
