SUBSTANCE USE AFFECTS MORE THAN CANADIANS’ HEALTH.
IT ALSO HAS A BIG IMPACT ON OUR
ECONOMY.

In a new study by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction and the Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, it is estimated that the overall cost of substance use in Canada was $38.4 billion in 2014. That amounts to approximately $1,100 for every Canadian regardless of age.
