Community links

In the Resource Guide, we provide detailed information and page links to specific crystal meth friendly programmes and services among community organizations in Toronto. In this section, we offer a more complete list of general community health and wellness resources. Many of these agencies offer other services and information that you may want to access as well.

We’ve also expanded the list to include AIDS service organizations (ASOs) because many guys dealing with issues related to crystal meth may also be dealing with being poz. We include agencies that offer HIV/AIDS information and resources to diverse racial, cultural and ethnic communities. The descriptor line for each organization highlights some of the services available.

All of the agencies listed are based in downtown Toronto. Most of these links will take you directly to the respective home page and you can explore from there. The opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect our own.
