Call for Submissions Deadline Extended!

Apply before November 30th at: 



Missed the original deadline for OD-PREP: OverDose Prevention & Response – Essential Practices Knowledge Exchange Series? Well it’s your lucky day! The Public Health Association of BC, Community Action Initiative, and the Canadian Mental Health Association – BC Division want to give everyone the chance to apply so we are extending our deadline to midnight on November 30!


This is your opportunity to get more recognition for the work you’ve been doing, get reimbursed for your time based on best practice compensation for peers, and help us to create a tight-knit community of likeminded individuals, organizations and groups fighting against overdose and drug poisoning deaths. Act fast, we won’t be extending the deadline again!


The application only takes a few minutes to complete. If you are really pressed for time just leave us your contact information and we will follow up with you to get the whole story. If you can answer all the questions in the online form, that’s great! But if you just don’t have time right now, we get it. That’s why we’re keeping it as barrier-free as possible.


For those who were able to submit their work already, thank you for working hard to meet the original deadline! We’ll follow up if we need to for any clarifications. If you haven’t yet, get on it! Check out the form, all the details about the project, and complete your application before midnight on the 30th by following this link: 


Once the call closes, we may request some follow up information through December and we will work closely with our advisory committee to select which submissions will be featured in our series. You should know the status of your submission by the end of January!


For those of you who are not submitting your work for consideration but are still passionate about the fight against drug overdoses and poisoning in this province and beyond, stay tuned! This series is only part of our plan to launch a network along with a dedicated webpage of resources related to overdose response & prevention.
