Canada's Recovery Day Story

Inspired by the movie, “The Anonymous People”, recovery advocates in Vancouver received a proclamation from the mayor to initiate the first ever Recovery Day in Canada on September 30th, 2012. Faces and Voices of Recovery Canada was founded in April 2013.

Celebrating September as National Recovery Month

Join us throughout the month of September as Canadians in recovery from addiction will join with friends and family to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities. We believe that recovery saves lives. We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where individuals will not experience shame when seeking help. We are passionate about sharing our stories of recovery in the hope of inspiring others to join us on the rewarding yet diverse path to wholeness. Together we will demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.
