The Project

Ontario’s professional source for credible cannabis information

The Cannabis Knowledge Exchange Hub connects service providers and other stakeholders from various sectors across Ontario and Canada with credible, evidence-based information on the non-medical use of cannabis. 

Who is the Cannabis Knowledge Exchange Hub for?
Information on the website is intended for policymakers and professionals working in primary care (such as physicians or nurses), mental health and addictions ( such as counsellors or case managers), public health, education (such as teachers or administrators), and social services sectors (such as social workers or youth workers).
 
What kind of information will I find?
The resources, will include infographics, guidelines, webinar recordings, podcasts, research summaries, reports, handouts, and much more. These curated resources will help you stay up to date with the latest evidence on the non-medical use of cannabis.
 
How are the resources chosen?
We carefully curate the resources included in the Cannabis Knowledge Exchange Hub according to strict criteria to ensure they are relevant to our audience. 
We select resources that meet the following criteria: 

  • They are current
  • They focus on non-medical use of cannabis, 
  • They are intended for Ontario service providers, 
  • They are produced by a reputable  organization, 
  • They are based on evidence.

Resources are chosen based on their relevance across the continuum of care, from promotion and prevention to harm reduction, treatment, and recovery. Ontario and Canadian resources are prioritized to make sure the information is most relevant to service providers.
 
Who curates the content?
The resources are curated by knowledge brokers in the Provincial System Support Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). We work with communities, service providers, and other partners across Ontario to move evidence to action and create sustainable, system-level change.
 
The Cannabis Knowledge Exchange Hub is funded by Health Canada's Substance Use and Addictions Program.
