Community Action Teams (CATs) are an integral part of responding to the overdose crisis in BC. The CAT Knowledge Exchange connects all 36 CATs throughout BC to share learning and accelerate local work to address the overdose crisis. Virtual learning and networking went from October 2020 to October 2023. These meetings included project-focused sessions and capacity-building webinars. This initiative is in partnership with the Community Action Initiative and funded by the Ministry of Mental Health & Addictions, while guided by diverse individuals who represent CATs and includes people with lived and/or living experience.
