Share your thoughts: Consultation to inform proposed new regulations for supervised consumption sites and services
Current status: Open
Opened on August 15, 2020, and closing on October 14, 2020.
Health Canada proposes to develop new regulations under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) for supervised consumption sites and services. Our intent is to:
- establish supervised consumption sites and services within Canada's overall harm-reduction framework, consistent with the public health objectives of the CDSA;
- establish clear federal regulatory controls, consistent with the public safety objectives of the CDSA;
- reduce the overall regulatory burden on SCS applicants and operators; and,
- provide greater certainty and permanence for SCS operators, better ensuring the continuity of SCS and services in Canada.
