What is Recovery Day?
People suffering from addiction are often judged as having moral weakness. Even once
they found recovery, that stigma may continue. Recovering from an addiction is hard
enough, but for many individuals suffering from the disease of addiction, even more
difficult is dealing with society’s judgement. The recovery movement is being organized
at the local, provincial, and federal level, one that is aimed at keeping the focus on the
fact that recovery works and is making life better for millions of Canadians.
Recovery Day aims to put a face and a voice on those who have found the solution. By
offering hope and highlighting where services are available in our communities, those
who are still suffering can see that services are here to help. Along with other cities
across Canada, we are rallying and celebrating in the month of September to raise
awareness and reduce the stigma.
The event is being accompanied by an official proclamation by His Worship Mayor
McDonald, recognizing Recovery Day in the City. The day of celebration also includes
as outlined in our schedule many celebratory messages along with an exciting guest
speaker.

This year’s planning committee is comprised of members from the Community Drug
Strategy, North Bay & Area, West Nipissing Hospital- Alliance Center, North Bay
Regional Hospital – King St. Campus, Mattawa Hospital, Canadian Mental Health

Association-North Bay & District and AIDS Committee of North Bay and Area. For
