From Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA)
“Canada’s Guidance on Alcohol and Health provides evidence-based advice on alcohol to support people in making informed decisions about their health. The guidance is based on the latest research on alcohol-related risks and replaces Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines (LRDGs) issued in 2011.
The guidance is based on the principle of autonomy in harm reduction and the fundamental idea behind it that people living in Canada have a right to know that all alcohol use comes with risk.”
For more information and resources, please access the CCSA website.
The CCSA has also developed the Canada’s Guidance on Alcohol and Health Communications Toolkit:
“Use this online toolkit when engaging with patients, clients and the public. These products are accessible, shareable, printable and ready for your use. These tools will help you provide the information people need to make well-informed and responsible decisions about their alcohol consumption.”
