Medically Supervised Injection Services

Overview

Throughout 2016, CEYC has met with various content experts to gain perspective and accurate information regarding medically supervised injection services. After our members passed a motion to publicly support the implementation of these services in Edmonton, CEYC sent a memo to City Council to inform them of the youth perspective on this matter. 

We have identified the following reasons for bringing forward this issue to City Council:

  • to reduce significant health issues and medical costs related to unsafe injection.
  • to reduce youth substance overdose mortality and focus on prevention.
  • to ensure the wellbeing of youth and increase community belonging.
