On 2014, after the body of at least 75 victims of drug overdose was found by autopsy, the health agency decided to take action to account for all fatal overdose.
This was a big increase compared to 2012, when only cases of the drug were found.
Partners have launched a harm reduction campaign and launched Facebook ads for the population known to use the drug, which is 100 times more effective than morphine.
The materials warn users of the dangers of the drug while telling them how to use it in the safest way possible.
The campaign warned: 'It is possible that Fen is hidden in the drug you are using . '.
'You can't see it, you can't smell it, you can't taste it, but it will kill you.
In Alberta, the trend towards the misuse of Fen is similar, with drug-related lethal overdoses doubling from 29 in 2012 to 66 times a year later and remaining stable in 2014, at that time, Fen was the cause or contributing factor of 61 deaths.
Alberta's health services have issued some warnings about the dangerous drug, but Royal Canadian Mounted Police and health officials say they are still in the planning stage for a comprehensive response across the province.
The plans were made in late 2011 and early 2012 after a faster response to a group of ecstasy-related deaths, which contain a toxic chemical called
In this case, 20 Albertans died of a fatal overdose within 11 months, triggering a series of public warnings in the Calgary area.
Warnings and cooperation between health and law enforcement agencies are believed to help reduce the fatal excess associated with plexiglass, but police and health officials say, what they are dealing with is a more urgent threat that is different from the problem of fen.
Liberal leader David Swan said he was shocked by the rise in the number of deaths associated with fen and wondered why provincial and health authorities did not respond more quickly.
'It is shocking that we have not taken a more positive position on this,' said Dr. and former health care officer Swann.
Fen is a prescription pain killer used to treat chronic pain, which can be fatal at low doses if not properly taken.
Police believe that the pills sold on the street did not come from pharmacies, but were manufactured in illegal laboratories and did not have any control over the dose.

In 2012, it was proved that the oxykeone tablet was called oxygen to enter the Canadian market.
Now it is difficult for users to take or inject this new drug, and illegal dealers are selling counterfeit hydrokeone containing potentially lethal Fen, called 'green jelly' or 'street oxygen base ', police and health officials said.
Senior public health officials in Alberta say they are aware of the increase in the use of Fen and contribute to the country's warning of the emergence and danger of the drug.
'Over the past few months, we have been consulting with various stakeholders across the province on this issue,' Dr.
Chief medical officer of health, James Talbot and Dr.
Chief addiction and mental health officer Michael Treu wrote in a joint statement to The Herald.
'We are actively considering various strategies involving cooperation.
Coordinated public health response
From prevention, early intervention to addiction treatment.
Talbot and Trew said in the statement that they are preparing proposals for health minister Stephen Mandel and will share more information in the coming months.
Peter jotter, assistant professor at Mount Royal University, who works on addiction, said he acted quickly to inform users of threats from emerging drugs such as fen, explaining how to take them in the safest way, to prevent overdoses and deaths.
'That's not to say, 'Give it a try.
That said, 'If you're going to do this, then here's how you reduce your risk, and here's how you can avoid suicide, choate said.
'It has to be communicated that it is a dangerous drug and I don't think you should do it, but it is realistic that we know that some people will do it.
'Alberta Health Services and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police issued a joint warning on the drug on December in the northwestern Alberta City of Grande Prairie, after officials seized 10,000 last month.
The AHS also sent warnings about the drug to senior doctors in each health zone, showed them how the fake medicine looked and explained how to manage the patient in the emergency room.
But research shows that users may not be willing to call a caregiver when a friend overtakes medicine because they are afraid of police.
In 2012, a survey of clients from drug rehabilitation centers in three cities in Ontario found that a third respondent said they would not call 911 if they saw an overdose.
The most common concern is fear of arrest.
Police in Vancouver have decided that they need to do more to address the problem of Fen after the death toll has risen, and the report shows that the victim is not on the street --

In Alberta, Calgary police and the RCMP said they were considering a strategy to address the problem.
Police in Calgary say they face a different level of urgency than the organic glass that appeared more than three years ago.
In the past six months, there have been nine fatal excesses in Calgary related to toxic ecstasy.
After the third time, the police said they had been notified by the chief forensic office.
Police said they had not received a similar warning about the use of the drug.
During the 'Jumei' panic, officials warned journalists, parents, teachers, students, community institutions and health care workers. Dr.
Alberta's medical director for Poison and Drug Information Services, Mark Arema, said the province's response to jumeijin was more rapid, in part because Calgary had not seen toxic chemicals before.
This is an unknown threat compared to the known pain killer, Fen.
Yarema said the most important response to the problem of Fen was to make it easier for users to get the naroone antidote, and senior public health officials said they were considering it as part of their province's approach.
'The popularity of plexiglass is unprecedented and continues in such a short period of time, and we feel we need to do everything we can to stop it,' Yarema said . '.
