Email Us

At the Ontario Poison Centre, we believe the best care occurs when we build positive relationships with our callers. If you have a comment, compliment or concern, we encourage you to email us.

Part of building a positive relationship is sharing stories that others can learn from. If you have a story to share about a poisoning that happened to you, a friend or family member, please email us. You could be featured in a news story! Stories can also remain anonymous, based on your preference.

For administrative questions or requests for poison prevention materials, please email us.
