Alcohol is a leading risk factor for disease, disability and premature death in Canada. Short-term health risks associated with alcohol include: injuries, violence and alcohol poisoning. Alcohol can also lead to serious long-term health risks such as: cancer, liver disease, heart disease, stroke, mental illness and alcohol dependence.

We provide expertise and resources on developing, planning and implementing alcohol-related interventions including policy, screening, labelling and advertising.
