The Safer Consumption Spaces Working Group has completed a report on the findings of their consultation and needs assessment. The Working Group is a voluntary collective of people from organizations who came together with a common interest in learning from people who use drugs about the spaces of everyday drug use, and the spaces they envision and value.

Following a months-long community consultation process, Sunshine House is pleased to release the Managed Alcohol Programs in Manitoba Feasibility Report.
Managed Alcohol Programs seek to improve the health, wellness and safety of people who use alcohol chronically, are experiencing homelessness, and who often use non-beverage alcohol. MAPs provide access to safer, beverage alcohol to minimize the varied potential harms associated with chronic alcohol use.
The report — authored by Margaret Bryans (RN BN) presents the findings gathered from from Peers, community members, public health workers and researchers. The report also provides context from the history of MAPs in other parts of Canada, and emphasizes the importance of using an Indigenous lens to address harms associated with substance use, using a decolonized Trauma-Informed approach.
The report also provides recommendations for immediate, short- and long-term steps to be taken toward establishing a MAP in Manitoba, as well as clinical and staffing recommendations within varying funding parameters.
