Drug Strategy Community Partners

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.
