Research shows that successful community drug strategies have staff dedicated to ensuring the recommendations are implemented and that changes are lasting. An early action was to secure a full-time coordinator position to help make sure the actions are implemented and evaluated.
In 2011, a Community Partnership Proposal was developed to secure additional resources and community leadership for implementation in keeping with best practices [Federation of Canadian Municipalities, “Municipal Drug Strategy: Sustaining Community-based Initiatives,” 2003]. The Community Partnership is led by the municipality with support from institutional partners that have mandates coinciding with the pillars upon which the Thunder Bay Drug Strategy is built.
