BC Substance Use Conference

Each year, BC Substance Use Conference brings together clinicians, researchers, policymakers, community experts, people with lived and living experience with substance use, and families and caregivers for dialogue and knowledge-sharing on the best evidence-based approaches to substance use, addiction, and drug policy.

In 2024, more than 1,100 people from across BC and Canada attended our 6th annual conference, which centered on the theme "From Idea to Implementation." We're grateful to all of those who attended, presented, and spoke at our conference.

Stay tuned for details on our 2025 conference.
