Student Drug Use Surveys Working Group
In 2003, CCSA formed an expert group to support the collection of student drug use data across Canada. The Student Drug Use Surveys (SDUS) Working Group is made up of representatives from provinces that regularly conduct provincial and national student surveys. The SDUS Working Group continues to act as a forum to exchange information on survey design and methodology, and to explore special topics through the data collected by the surveys.
Since its creation, the group has developed strategies to support a coordinated approach to student drug use surveys in Canada, and identified and addressed gaps in knowledge to help inform tailored prevention initiatives for students. The group’s most recent report is Cannabis Use, Harms and Perceived Risks among Canadian Students.
