SCS selection advisory committee

A SCS Site Selection Advisory Committee has been created to advise and support the Barrie SCS applicants — The Gilbert Centre, Canadian Mental Health Association Simcoe, and Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit — to further explore and review SCS site options in downtown Barrie. Please see the attached Terms of Reference for further details on the committee and its membership.

Check back often for committee updates.

Please see the linked Terms of Reference for more details on the committee and its membership.

  1. John Barbaro, Epidemiologist with SMDHU provided a presentation (PDF, 1.1Mb) on opioid related ER visits and deaths in Barrie based on a person’s 6-digit postal code as well as data from Emergency Medical Services (EMS) regarding opioid related calls based on location dispatched to. This presentation can be shared broadly.
  2. The committee will continue to collect/share data to inform the SCS site selection process.
  3. The committee is beginning to explore how to proceed with community consultation and engagement once a shortlist of potential sites has been identified.

  • SCS Site Selection Committee members reviewed and made suggested edits to the terms of reference. These will come back to next meeting for review and approval.
  • A high level overview of consultation and engagement done to date was provided and initial discussion took place regarding these activities moving forward
