Mar 15, 2023

Thunderbird Partnership Foundation will carried out test campaigns in select communities across Canada including Nipissing First Nation

A new harm reduction campaign has been launched to promote the importance of First Nations teachings in fighting opioid addictions in Indigenous communities across the province.

This will include providing assistance to at least one First Nation located in Northeastern Ontario.

The campaign has been launched by the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation of Bothwell, Ontario, a non-profit organization committed to addressing substance abuse in First Nations.

“Thunderbird defines harm reduction as a way to keep individuals, families, and communities safe from the harms of substance use.

And this is the message our campaign brings,” said Carol Hopkins, chief executive officer at Thunderbird.
