Ontario’s Narcotics Strategy is promoting the proper use, prescribing and dispensing of prescription narcotics and other controlled substance medications, while ensuring that people who need them continue to have access.

This is being done to help reduce the misuse, addiction, unlawful activities and deaths related to these medications.
