Cannabis Use

Browse this collection of toolkits, factsheets, and reports that offer insight into new cannabis laws, harm reduction, and strategies to help youth and youth workers navigate conversations about cannabis use.

As of October 2018, recreational cannabis is legal in Canada. Youth workers and service providers in the sector are in a unique position to provide important information to young people who may be using—or thinking about using—cannabis. 


Browse this collection of resources to support you and your work, and the young people in your community, during this difficult time.

You can also browse this additional collection of past conversations from our series, The Relentless Pursuit of Better Youth Outcomes: Reimagining Youth Work in a COVID-19 Era.

We recognize that this is a universally personal, dynamic, and challenging time for everyone. Please get in touch with our team if can we offer any additional supports.

Through their innovative, community-based approach, students receive four important, wraparound areas of support—academic, financial, social, and one-on-one—which include programming and incentives like after-school tutoring, mentoring, networking opportunities, transit passes to get to and from school, and scholarships for post-secondary education.

Established in 2007, the Ontario Child Advocate was an independent office of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, and their work was guided by the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. On November 15, 2018, the provincial government announced that they would be repealing the Provincial Advocate for Children & Youth Act and would be closing the Advocate’s Office. As of May 1, 2019, the Advocate’s Office is closed.
