Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction

Canadians want answers to their questions about cannabis. We want individuals to have the information they need to make informed choices and know how to lower the risks to their health if they decide to use cannabis.

Our vision for public education is simple: to provide accessible, evidence-based information. Working closely with our strategic partners, we develop relevant resources that speak to Canada’s diverse population.

This page provides information on CCSA’s suite of public education resources about cannabis and links to resources developed in collaboration with partners. Educators looking for resources on young people and substance use can also visit the Educators and Youth and Emerging Adults pages.
