What is harm reduction?
Harm reduction is the practice of providing tools and resources to folks in our community in an effort to promote their wellbeing. This can be related to substance use, sex, hormone injections, or any combination of these activities.

You can always “Build your own kit” with just the tools you need. Through our online ordering form, you can select individual items and how many you would like so we will only send you what you need. When you are picking up in person, you can simply ask for whichever supplies you need.
We only use plain packaging to deliver your orders. We seal the deliveries and only write the name provided and the street address on the package. We also encourage the use of a pseudonym when ordering if you need extra discretion.
We do encourage you to provide an email or telephone number for us to contact you when deliveries are on their way to you.

Orders will be delivered to the front lobby or entrance of a building. Our volunteers will not be able to enter the building and deliver to your door. They will buzz, if a buzz number is provided, to let you know the order has arrived.
For small orders, we can send your order through the mail so it will arrive discreetly in your mailbox.
For really large orders, we might suggest picking them up at MAX’s Office.
Any concerns around delivery, please contact Mat Adams at email@example.com.
Deliveries will be made on Wednesdays between 4pm - 8pm. If you have a specific time you would be home, please put it in the Delivery Instructions when filling out your order.
Depending on what day you place your order, we will try to have it delivered the next dispensing day. If the order is received on a Wednesday morning we will try to get it out the same day.
Mail deliveries can take between 2-5 business days.
MAX's harm reduction supply delivery service is now available to GBT2Q guys in Ottawa and Gatineau.
Deliveries are made on Wednesdays, depending on volunteer availability. If there is no volunteer available, we will mail the supplies to you.
Use the form below to request harm reduction. A member of our team will bring them to you and drop them off at the entrance of your home, for contactless delivery.
All shipments or drop-offs are done using discrete packaging. Feel free to use a fake name for increased confidentiality.
If you have any questions, please reach the Harm Reduction Programs Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Mat Adams at 613.701.6555 ext 103
