  • Substance/addiction services (e.g. overdose prevention, harm reduction supplies)

High Priority Communities

MMS services High Priority Communities (HPC). The HPCs are targeted by the first three digits of their postal codes and based on COVID-19 disease prevalence and vaccination data, opioid overdose rates, and the Ontario Marginalization Index. For the purposes of HPC strategy planning, the first three digits of postal codes were cross referenced based on usage of walk-ins and ambulance calls and overlaid with access to primary care practitioners within that area.
