New Mandated Legislation

The opioid crisis in Canada has been a significant public health concern in recent years, with many individuals experiencing poisoning and substance use disorder. Ontario has been particularly affected, with high opioid-related deaths and hospitalization rates. The crisis has also had significant impacts on businesses in Ontario. ​

To help address these issues, the Ontario government introduced the Ontario Workplace Naloxone Program*. This program aims to provide businesses with the knowledge and tools needed to respond to opioid poisoning in the workplace. ​

Under the program, businesses can access free self-directed on-line naloxone training and kits to distribute to employees
