Health Canada has launched a public consultation on potential next steps in the Canadian Drugs and Substances Strategy (CDSS).
The purpose of this consultation is to engage Canadians on new and innovative ideas on how to further strengthen the federal government’s approach to substance use issues through the CDSS. The consultation will last for 90 days, closing on December 4, 2018. To participate you will provide feedback through an on-line questionnaire based on key themes, including:
- Taking action on the root causes and risk factors of problematic substance use
- Reducing stigma towards people who use drugs
- Improving access to comprehensive, evidence-based treatment services
- Applying a public health lens to regulation and enforcement activities
