Who is developing the website?

The Cannabis Knowledge Exchange Hub is hosted by the Provincial System Support Program (PSSP) at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). PSSP works with communities, service providers and other partners across Ontario to move evidence to action to create sustainable, system-level change.

The Hub is supported by a cross-sectoral Champions Circle. The Champions Circle plays a key role by identifying the evidence needs and gaps specific to their sector’s service providers and recommending different knowledge exchange activities to inform decision-making. The Champions Circle also engages system planners as well as policymakers at the provincial and national levels to inform policy change and, ultimately, reduce harms associated with cannabis use.
