Get the Strategy

In 2005, some significant media attention was given to what was seen as a mounting crack cocaine problem in the City of Guelph.  In response to this, the County of Wellington Ontario Works office initiated two community forums to discuss the challenge of substance misuse in our community.  At these forums, agency representatives and community members came together to consider how the harm and impact of substance misuse might be more effectively addressed.  From these initial meeting, the Wellington Guelph Drug Strategy Committee (WGDSC) was formed in 2006.

Since then, the Wellington Guelph Drug Strategy has grown and evolved. We remain committed to the change we started to make a difference in the lives of the thousands of community members living in Guelph and Wellington County who are impacted by substance use.
