Requests of the Canadian Government

Families for Addiction Recovery (FAR) met with MP Rob Oliphant in December, 2017 to request that:

  • all federal cannabis profits go to the treatment of addiction and mental illness until health care funding matches the burden of these conditions;
  •  the federal government take an active role in facilitating national discussions on decriminalizing the possession of drugs for personal use;

  • the federal government establish a task force to determine best practices to protect youth struggling with addiction who are not seeking treatment; and

  • FAR be given a seat at the table to represent families affected by addiction.
