About Know More
In 2018, the Know More public awareness initiative started as in-person sessions in high schools, on post-secondary school campuses, at festivals and other events. It has now transitioned to virtual classroom presentations in 2020.
During the sessions, participants are encouraged to learn about opioids through interactive activities covering the following topics:
- What are opioids?
- What is fentanyl?
- Overdose awareness and understanding the crisis in Canada
- Signs of an overdose
- The Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act
- Addressing stigma towards people who use drugs
Discover more about the Know More tour and how you can participate.
Know More is supported by a broader marketing campaign to ensure that Canadians, especially youth, learn about the facts surrounding the crisis and health risks associated with problematic opioid use. The aim is to reach as many communities across the country as possible. Engagement is increased through our supporting materials, which are available to view or order:
- Opioid overdose: Wallet card
- Opioid overdose poster
- Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act poster
- Fact sheets
