West Vancouver Schools has been a member of the
North Shore Task Force on Substance Abuse since its inception in October 2000.

The Task Force was formed by the North Shore Congress to contribute a North Shore perspective on any Lower Mainland or provincial action on substance abuse. The Task Force has been working with many sectors to develop a draft North Shore Substance Abuse Strategy based on the four pillars of:

  • prevention
  • treatment
  • enforcement, and
  • harm reduction.

This strategy benefits from and complements other substance abuse policies throughout the Lower Mainland, while emphasizing the unique needs of North Shore communities.
