For 35 years, Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) has been working at the forefront of substance use disorders, using evidence-based research to drive meaningful change. Our goal is to reduce the harm caused by substance use disorders and inform people living in Canada and policy makers. With a proud track record of success, we continue to push the boundaries and strive for even greater impact in the future.

We are very proud to see how far we’ve come, but we’re not stopping here. We’re always thinking about how we can do even more and make an even bigger impact in the future.


1988 An act of Parliament created CCSA as a non-governmental organization to provide national leadership on substance use and to advance solutions to address alcohol- and other drug-related harms.
