See the full version of Health Canada’s Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CSTADS)

CSTADS is a school-based survey administered to a sample of students in grades 7 to 12 (Secondary I through V in Quebec) in schools across Canada every two years.

This survey is an important surveillance tool which provides timely and reliable data toward the development and evaluation of strategies, policies and programs aimed at reducing problematic substance use and related harms among Canada’s youth.

Provincial ministries of education, school boards (where applicable) and schools will be contacted for their cooperation and support.

On a date selected by the school, students will complete the survey over a 30 to 40-minute period in the classroom under the supervision of a teacher.

All survey materials and support for the survey will be provided to the school. Students can refuse to take part in the survey at any time with no penalty.

Responses are confidential and are never linked to the student.
