Drug Alerts

Stay informed and stay safe with Drug Alert notifications

Drug alerts warn community members and front-line service providers when there is an elevated risk of overdose in their community. Alerts are issued by the Ministry of Health, and quickly share information when there are multiple overdoses, suspected drug toxicity deaths, or concerning substances circulating or causing significant harms in a community.

With today’s increasingly/highly toxic supply of illegal drugs, anyone who uses these substances is at significant risk of harms including overdose and death. This is true whether use is occasional, recreational, or habitual. Learn more about overdose and prevention.

Drug alerts share valuable, potentially life-saving information to help community members and service providers manage risks.
