Please note that PAD is now closed. This website is now a static site.
Parent Action on Drugs has addressed issues related to youth substance use since 1983. Due to loss of funding it is with regret that PAD is now closed. This website will remain as a static website until September 2021 so that you may continue to access PAD resources.
Key resources such as our newly developed cannabis tools: the Weed Like to Know Chatbot, whatswithweed.ca website which houses the CYC questionnaire and the SMS tool, have been transferred to the National Institute for Cannabis Health and Education (NICHE) so they will continue to be available to you. The Parent Action Pack and the Strengthening Families for Parents and Youth (SFPY) will now reside with the Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA).
It has been our pleasure to have worked with so many wonderful youth, parents, educators, health professionals and volunteers.
We wish you well as you continue to support youth, families and communities.
