Dear friends and colleagues,
After more than fifteen years of relentless, smart and courageous leadership, Alliance Chief Executive Officer Adrianna Tetley is retiring.
Adrianna gave the Board of Directors her notice to retire in September 2019. She is committed to a smooth transition without the need of an interim CEO. Our goal is to have the new CEO in place by June 2020.

Re: Supervised Injection/Overdose Prevention Announcement
Dear Minister Elliott,
We welcome the Ontario government’s decision today to continue to fund and support supervised consumption and overdose prevention services for people who use drugs. We are further encouraged that you have committed to ensuring that existing services will continue without interruption while a new model is introduced, and that the three sites placed on pause in August will be able to open.
