U Vic and Health Canada launch Drug Checking Program for Harm Reduction

This project, initiated and led by Prof. Dennis Hore of University of Victoria aims to test drug samples in the field, cataloging the findings and providing feedback to service users to reduce the potential for harm to users and support resources.  Sponsorship is through Health Canada with support from suppliers including ProSpect Scientific Inc and our partner Agilent Technologies.   On 23 April, U Vic announced the launch of their project in a session attended by the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health and members of the project team and supporters (including Dr. Kelly Akers of ProSpect Scientific).  More information about the work being done by U Vic and their findings is available at https://substance.uvic.ca/
