This one day workshop is designed to provide historical context for harm reduction initiatives and practices in Toronto, and to introduce the concept of both substance use and harm reduction as continua.  We will explore some of the roots and effects of stigma and NIMBYism; some barriers/solutions to implementing harm reduction models, and the efficacy of harm reduction strategies.  An example of a practical application of harm reduction illustrating the value of including peer expertise in projects and programs will be afforded through an examination of overdose risks and responses.
