The Community Opioid Response Task Force was launched in December 2017 by Mayor Bill Given in response to the opioid crisis in Grande Prairie. The purpose of the Task Force is to coordinate community efforts in responding to the opioid crisis to develop a response based on local needs and resources.

The Task Force is composed of school district representatives, health care representatives, RCMP, social services organizations, community members, and individuals with lived experience in the community, and several municipal government departments.

Quarterly Reports

Starting with the Q3 2019 report, the Grande Prairie Community Opioid Response Task Force is now making quarterly reports publicly available on their response efforts to the local opioid crisis.  

The reports are designed to serve as a resource for the many community partners involved in the task force, to educate the community, and to enhance transparency and accountability around the efforts of the task force. The reports are a result of the collaboration of all the participating agencies and are intended to include locally relevant and meaningful data to represent and support the work being completed to combat the crisis, while providing the community a snapshot of the current situation.
