Tomorrow is a day to remember those who have succumbed to overdose and to learn how to prevent it in the future.
The Play it Safer Network will be hosting an awareness event outside of the CJAR building from Noon to 3 this afternoon.
There will be games, information sessions, refreshments, and Naloxone Training being offered by trained professionals.
For those looking for information, you can stop by and speak with Krista Tooley, event coordinator.
"International Overdose Awareness Day is the world's largest annual campaign to end overdose and remember those who have died *without* stigma and acknowledge the grief that many friends and family have left behind."
The pandemic has seen an increase in drug-related deaths across Canada which makes this event as important as ever.
