webinar banner


On January 31st, 2018, EENet presented a webinar on the findings from the 2017 Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey (OSDUHS).

Although rates of substance use have declined among youth in Ontario, key issues such as alcohol, cannabis and tobacco use continue to be a concern.  Many sectors, including health, justice, and education, have a role to play in addressing these issues.

The findings of the OSDUHS can help educators, public health professionals, policy-makers, and other youth-serving professionals understand drug use trends as a way to inform related activities and services.
