The Ontario Harm Reduction Network (OHRN) supports harm reduction efforts in Ontario by offering knowledge exchange, networking, and capacity-building opportunities to harm reduction service providers and agencies. We bring together harm reduction workers and program managers from across the province through The Outreach Network. OHRN is funded through the Ontario Ministry of Health.
