We are part of Healthy Sexuality and Harm Reduction in the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority's (WRHA) Population and Public Health Program.

Public health nurses and outreach workers staff our van, which drives around the city every evening except Sunday. You can also find us during the day from Monday to Friday in our office on the main floor of 496 Hargrave St.
We base our services on a harm reduction philosophy. This means that we support programs and policies that improve the health of people who use drugs and support people in their efforts to keep themselves and the larger community safe, without judging people for their sexual or drug use practices.

Frequently-asked questions (FAQ)

What do you mean by harm reduction?

The International Harm Reduction Association defines harm reduction as “policies, programmes and practices that aim to reduce the adverse health, social and economic consequences of the use of legal and illegal psychoactive drugs without necessarily reducing drug consumption.” This means that we help people who use drugs to become as safe and healthy as possible, without insisting that they quit in order to access important services.


Harm reduction is neutral and does not judge whether behaviour is ‘right’ or ‘wrong.’ We know that people who use drugs can develop abscesses or catch an infection by sharing used needles and syringes. We try to provide the tools people need to help keep themselves safer. This helps keep us all safer too.
