SisterSpace: Canada’s First Women-Only Shared Using Room

SisterSpace is Canada’s first women-only overdose prevention site. This harm reduction program opened in May 2017 in response to the opioid crisis.

This short documentary, a collaboration between the Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health and Atira Women’s Resource Society, provides a glimpse into the program’s philosophy and the impact of the program for women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
