- On behalf of the Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council and the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, we are pleased to share a new film and a public service announcement to create greater awareness of Canada’s Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act. The act aims to increase the likelihood of a person seeking medical assistance during an overdose emergency by providing limited immunity from prosecution for both overdose witnesses and victims across Canada. The film and PSA build on previous efforts to improve public awareness about the legal protections offered by the Act, including a fact sheet and wallet-sized information card, both available in English and French. The free resources can be found at here and here.
