Barrie Supervised Consumption Site- Neighbourhood Consultation Sessions

We are inviting you to participate in a virtual (online) neighbourhood consultation to give us your feedback on how the proposed Supervised Consumption Service (SCS) locations in the Barrie community outlined below can best meet the needs of clients using the services and the surrounding residential and business community.

The locations under consideration are:

  • 110 Dunlop St W. Unit 4 
  • 11 Sophia St W. 
  • 19 Innisfil St. (also known as 80 Bradford St. Unit 940) 
  • 192 Bradford St.

Each virtual session will be 2 hours in length. During these sessions you will be asked for your feedback about:

  • the benefits of each location; 
  • the concerns about each location; and 
  • the strategies to address your concerns for each location. Concerns or comments about supervised consumption sites in general will not be addressed during these sessions.

At this time we are offering 4 virtual (online) neighbourhood consultation sessions using the Zoom platform. Please see the following link if you are having any trouble with Zoom on the day of the event

Each virtual session is limited to 160 participants. Please register for only one session. The registration is through Eventbrite.

The feedback from the sessions will be used by the SCS Advisory Committee and Applicants to inform decision making on a final site option to move forward in the application process.
