Researchers say more than two people die in Ontario each day of opioid overdoses.

A new report by drug researchers says the rate of opioid-related deaths has almost quadrupled over the last 25 years — from 144 in the early 90’s to 734 in 2015.
The report says the annual number of deaths related to opioids, like fentanyl, and Oxycodone is now higher than the number of people killed in traffic collisions on Ontario roads.
