CCSA attends the
Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD) as an observer. CICAD’s mission is to help reduce the production, trafficking and use of illegal drugs in the Americas. CICAD was established by the General Assembly of the
Organization of American States (OAS) in 1986 as the western hemisphere's policy forum on all aspects of the drug problem.
CCSA participates in the forum almost every year, sharing Canadian perspectives and championing the value of including non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in drug policy making. CCSA embodies how NGO leadership has been effective in Canada and beyond.
