elcome to Vancouver! Let’s first acknowledge that we are gathered on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Thank you for making the journey here to find out what we are doing around safe supply and harm reduction. 

Behind the toggle boxes please find agendas for boths days, and links to the service providers we will be visiting. You will find other info that will be helpful like places to eat and how to get around town!

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to show you the complicated neighbourhood of the Downtown Eastside Vancouver BC.
