In Toronto, city council recently voted to approve three sites to host supervised injection. The Toronto Board of Health is already backing the application. Now, like in Ottawa, it’s just a matter of compiling the materials to send to the feds. And in Vancouver, on top of the two supervised injection services already running, there are approximately five more in the works. Patricia Daly, chief medical officer for Vancouver Coastal Health, is hoping the applications will be ready to go for the fall. Even for Daly and her team, who already have experience developing two services, the application process has been daunting. “We’ve had to devote significant staff resources to get the applications together to meet all the criteria in that act,” she says. “That is a big hurdle for people.”
