Thank you for visiting this non-exhaustive educational resource on harm reduction in so-called Edmonton {amiskwaciwâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ} on Treaty 6 Territory.

     Research for this project was began by sending out anonymous surveys to local community support organization workers, as well as individuals who identified as having lived experience with accessing substance use related services in the city. Responses from these surveys were then used to identify key topics in conversations around harm reduction that are explored in this project.

     Next, we analyzed peer-reviewed scientific articles to collect information on the approaches that current literature suggests are most beneficial to assist individuals with substance use disorders, as well as some evidence for how these approaches have also shown to benefit communities.

     We hope you enjoy the artful presentation of these important topics.
