The Harm Reduction Exchange Program is open to anyone in the Parkdale community, specifically for substance users and sex workers. The goal of the program is to reduce the harm associated with substance use by distributing clean supplies (syringes, crack pipes, etc) and provide health promotion concerning HIV/AIDS, Hep C, and other sexual health issues. We also provide health information and referrals to community resources, food (on Mondays from Second Harvest), and facilitate community outreach.
The Exchange is located on the first floor of Parkdale CHC. If you have any questions concerning the Exchange Program, please call 416.537.2455, extension 271.
