Share your thoughts: A public health approach to cannabis

Online survey: Understanding health and social services preparedness for the legalization of cannabis

If you are a service provider or professional working in the public health, health and social service sector, CPHA wants to hear from you to better understand your knowledge and information needs regarding cannabis consumption. 

CPHA is committed to engaging a range of individuals and organizations from the public health, health and social service communities to enhance their knowledge of, and capacity to address issues related to cannabis and other substance use. Our online survey should take between 10-15 minutes to complete and all responses will be kept confidential. Your responses will be used as a lens for the resources and products we develop so that they are sensitive to health and social service providers’ needs. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.
