The Interactive Opioid Tool allows users to explore the most recent opioid-related morbidity and mortality data including emergency department visits, hospitalizations and deaths. Results can be viewed by public health unit, Local Health Integration Network, age, sex, and in some cases, drug type.
Data from the interactive tool suggests there has been a steady increase in opioid-related harms in Ontario for more than a decade; more than 1,500 Ontarians died from opioid-related causes in 2019.
