Mental Health and Addictions

Southwestern Ontario is facing ever-growing numbers of opioid overdoses and the strains of mental health and addictions on our rural communities. The WOWC is committed to encouraging coordination and collaboration between all stakeholders to improve the health outcomes of our most vulnerable.

As always, the WOWC requests that the upper levels of government continue collaborating with the member municipalities in Southwestern Ontario, and to use the WOWC’s municipal expertise and collaborative regional power to benefit the residents and businesses across our communities.

Being part of the process and the conversation will be crucial as we move forward, and the strong partnership between our governments will help ensure collective success for all levels of government.
