Canada’s drug policy stands at a crossroads. Our current drug policy isn’t working. The evidence shows: punishment and prohibition hurt our loved ones and our communities.
Since 2010, the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition (CDPC) has worked with dedicated organizations and individuals across Canada to advance drug policy based in evidence, human rights and public health. And we’ve seen important grassroots-driven victories.
But the unregulated drug crisis continues to inflict deep wounds on our communities. And despite important progress, evidence-based approaches are under threat.
Please consider a special donation today.
The current unregulated, illegal market for drugs is controlled by high-level, transnational criminal organizations who care little for our safety, security and health. It has led to a contaminated drug supply that puts hundreds of thousands at risk every day. We need new approaches, grounded in evidence and the lived experience of front-line communities.
At the CDPC, we believe that drug policies based in evidence, public health, and human rights can help keep all of us safer, no matter whether we use drugs or not.
By making a gift today, you will support vital research and advocacy to help move Canadian drug policy away from criminalization and toward human rights and public health. You will ensure the voices of those on the frontline of this crisis are not only heard, but listened to by those who shape drug policies in the future. With your help, CDPC can bridge grassroots community action with high-level policy analysis and advocacy, propelling evidence-based changes forward.
Your support for CDPC will help move the conversation towards pragmatic solutions with the potential to save thousands of lives every year in Canada.
