Essential for Everyone
Many Vancouver Island communities are seeing growing numbers of people on the streets facing mental health, substance abuse and addiction problems. This can be disruptive to business and effect the reputation of the community. A panel of experts will discuss the importance of ensuring our communities continue to be safe for everyone: businesses, employees, customers, citizens, visitors and for the people who find themselves on the street. They will also talk about the role we can all play in advocating for the resources and the services that keep our streets safe and help this vulnerable population find a better future. The panel will have some insight into what works and what doesn’t.
