Federal Approval of Safe Supply

April 2, 2020

The VDLC applauds the Federal Government’s approval of safe supply for the City of Vancouver. Thank you to all who campaigned for this important, life-saving reform and to Mayor Kennedy Stewart and Council for their work on this issue. 

Our Council will work to ensure that the voices of workers on the frontline of the opioid crisis are heard during the implementation of safe supply.
