Presented by the CCSA (Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction)

Surfing the Second Wave: Maintaining Service Access During the COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 has exposed some of our population’s most vulnerable people, including those struggling with addiction and mental health. This webinar will feature an expert panel discussion on the implications that this pandemic has had on substance use services and supports. Our panelists will reflect on what measures and efforts were effective for their organizations during the first wave of the pandemic, and which were not, with the view to preparing for the likely second wave. The list of speakers will include representation from a number of healthcare sectors, including treatment, primary care, virtual care, shelters, and community support and harm reduction services.

Goals and Objectives:

  • Learning about what did and did not work well to ensure continuity in the provision of substance use services and supports during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Deriving valuable information on what preparations are in progress or can still be made for a potential second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic


When: Thursday September 24th at Noon – 1:30pm EST
Duration: 1.5 hours
Cost: COMPLIMENTARY courtesy of the CCSA

This webinar provides CEU credits recognized by the CACCF (Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation).
