Illicit Drug Task Force

In December 2018, the Illicit Drug Task Force was created, bringing federal, provincial, and municipal leaders together to address and respond to the rapid increase in the distribution and use of methamphetamine and other illicit drugs.

The task force included representatives from a wide-range of areas that deal with challenges posed by problematic substance use and illicit drug trafficking, including government ministries, law enforcement agencies, municipalities, professional organizations, and community member groups.

The Illicit Drug Task Force’s primary goal was to identify recommendations to reduce the use and effects of illicit drugs in Manitoba communities. The recommendations focus on increasing safety through prevention, education, treatment, and enforcement and disruption of supply.
