In 2013, the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) released Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines to help Canadians moderate their alcohol consumption and reduce their immediate and long-term alcohol-related harms. Subsequently, researchers from Laurentian University and the Sudbury & district Health Unit released the results of the Campus Alcohol Behaviour Survey, conducted to:
- look at trends in alcohol use among college and university students in the City of Greater Sudbury;
- determine their levels of awareness about the Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines
- identify best practice strategies to prevent high-risk drinking and encourage responsible drinking for this group.
