RECENT ADVOCACY TO GOVERNMENT
MAPS Canada advocates to all levels of government for improved drug policy. Read some of our recent letters:
Letter to the Mayor of Toronto requesting for an exemption from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA)
pursuant to s. 56(1) to decriminalize the personal possession of controlled drugs and substances in the city of Toronto.
Letter to Health Canada and the Minister of Health regarding the accessibility of psychedelic medicines through the Special Access Program, which contributed to psychedelics being taken off of Schedule J and therefore made accessible through the SAP.
Written Brief to the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights regarding bill C-5, suggesting amendments that bring us closer to decriminalization for personal possession of substances.
Letter to Toronto City Council and Toronto Public Health urging them to move forward with a Section 56 Exemption request (for de facto decriminalization of personal possession of substances).
Letters to Minister of Health supporting BC and Vancouver’s Section 56 Exemption requests (for de facto decriminalization of personal possession of substances), and supporting Toronto’s intention to submit a Section 56 Request.
