Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction

Youth substance use is an important health issue: evidence shows that individuals aged 15 to 24 years use substances more and experience more associated harms compared with other age groups. Understanding substance use trends among youth is essential to minimizing their risks and harms. CCSA collaborates with the Student Drug Use Surveys Working Group to support the collection and analysis of data from surveys, which help monitor emerging trends and inform policies, programs and services to improve the health outcomes of children and youth.
