The Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research (CISUR) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) are pleased to present findings from the Canadian Alcohol Policy Evaluation (CAPE) project.

Building on the report released in 2013, the CAPE project provides a rigorous assessment of whether evidence-based alcohol policies were being implemented in each of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories as well as by the Federal government as of 2017.

During this webinar participants will learn about:

  • high-level findings and project methods
  • selected findings from key policy areas demonstrating their potential for protecting public health and safety
  • This research will inform evidence-based alcohol policies in Canada to reduce and prevent alcohol-related harms. Additional project information and resources are available on our CAPE project page.

    Presented by the Canadian Alcohol Policy Evaluation (CAPE) Project Research Team. Presenters include:

    • Tim Stockwell, Director, Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, Victoria, BC
    • Norman Giesbrecht, Emeritus Scientist, Centre for Addiction & Mental Health, Toronto, ON
    • Ashley Wettlaufer, Research Coordinator, Centre for Addiction & Mental Health, Toronto, ON
    • Kara Thompson, Research Associate, St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, NS
    • Samantha Cukier, Doctoral student and Research Fellow, Dartmouth College
