The Canadian Executive Council on Addiction (CECA) is a national, non-governmental organization established in April, 2002:
To mobilize a common national agenda, together with other key stakeholders, that makes a difference to those affected by addiction; and
To provide leadership in transforming the healthcare system’s response to substance use.
The members of CECA are senior executives of addiction agencies that have a recognized federal, provincial or territorial mandate.
CCSA was a founding member of CECA, and the two organizations have collaborated on such research projects with national impact as:
Finding Quality Addiction Care in Canada
Finding Quality Addiction Care in Canada is a guide
to help members of the public make informed decisions when seeking substance use treatment for themselves or their loved ones. CECA partnered with the Government of Alberta and CCSA to develop the guide.
