Drug Task Force

The Drug Task Force (DTF) is an inter-sectoral group of leaders who are concerned with problematic substance use in Saskatchewan. The root causes of substance use and addictions are complex, touch all sectors of government, and require a multi-sectoral response as well as community engagement and partnerships.

Representatives include provincial government ministries (Health, Social Services, Corrections, Policing and Public Safety), the Chief Medical Health Officer, provincial coroner, police organizations (Saskatoon and Regina Police Services, RCMP), the Saskatchewan Health Authority, and the Saskatoon Tribal Council.

COVID-19 has highlighted the need to do more to address the impact of the increasingly toxic illicit drug supply on individuals, families and communities. In the fall of 2021, the DTF engaged people with lived experience, concerned family members, advocates and community-based organizations who provide services to those affected, to guide future decisions.

Community Engagement Results

The DTF released its community engagement results on March 3, 2022, identifying priorities to help reduce the number of overdose deaths in the province. Based on these priorities, they will develop a work plan, recognizing the importance of community support and the unique needs of communities.
