Poisoning and toxins

Poison or toxins can make you sick or harm you if you swallow, touch, or breathe them in. Many poisonings are accidental and take place at home. These pages can help you know what to watch for and what to do if you are exposed to a toxic substance.

If you think you’ve had an exposure to a substance you’re not sure about call the Poison and Drug Information Service (PADIS). In Alberta, call 1-800-332-1414 anytime day or night.

Some reactions may be mild at first and then may get worse without proper treatment.
