The Women and Gender Expansive Populations (WGEP)

Project was developed to identify and address access barriers

and facilitators at supervised consumption services (SCS)

and overdose prevention sites (OPS). This project was led

by the Lived Expertise Leadership Group (LEL Group) which

is composed of women and gender expansive people who

use(d) drugs, in addition to harm reduction service providers

and academic researchers who provided input through an

advisory committee.


In mid-2021, the project team developed

and disseminated a survey to collect feedback about the

accessibility of supervised consumption and overdose

prevention services from women and gender expansive people

who use drugs from across Canada.


This report summarizes the survey results, provides recommendations

from the Lived Expertise Leadership Group with insights from

the stakeholder advisory committee, and a comprehensive literature scan.


As part of this project, a resource guide and assessment/reflection

tool for SCS/OPS operators to improve access for women and

gender expansive people who use drugs is also planned.
