About the webinar

The opioid crisis is growing in Canada.

Health Canada estimates that since 2016 there have been more than 9,000 apparent opioid-related deaths. In 2017, approximately 11 lives were lost each day because of opioid overdoses.  

Canada’s street drugs continue to contain traces of fentanyl, ultimately leading to overdoses and deaths. These drug-related incidents pose increased challenges for public safety and public health agencies alike.

The province of Alberta is successfully leveraging data analytics and dashboards to combat the opioid crisis –by linking public health and public safety data to inform operational and policy decisions.

Whether you're a health and human services leader, a law enforcement official or an IT strategist, this webcast will be an important opportunity to understand how data and analytics can be used in the fight against opioids.
