What is the Community HR Response teams(chrrt)Project?

The Community Harm Reduction Response Teams (CHRRT) project was a three-year pilot community public health initiative (April 2018 to March 2021). It was designed to promote accessible low-threshold harm reduction (HR) services as a response to the high numbers of overdoses and overdose-related deaths in Toronto neighborhoods. A partnership of ten community organizations, CHRRT is funded by the Substance Use and Addictions Program (SUAP) of Health Canada (see sidebar).
