Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction

Sex, gender and other identity factors intersect to affect substance use prevalence, and the experiences and outcomes of those with substance use disorders. While sex and gender are more common perspectives when analyzing research and developing programs and policies, they need to be joined by other key identity factors such as race, ability, citizenship and income.

CCSA has committed to integrating sex-, gender- and equity-based analysis in all of its work. By looking at the whole body of research available and refining the results, we’re able to identify research and resources relevant to specific populations. This approach ensures our work is representative and comprehensive as we continue to learn more about substance use and addiction in Canada.
