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.
Ontarians are required to show their ID in order to be prescribed a narcotic or controlled substance medication. Ontario’s new narcotics monitoring system is collecting information and tracking the dispensing of prescription narcotics and other controlled substance medications. Learn more >>
