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. Several interventions are shown to be effective in promoting moderate alcohol use, raising awareness of and reducing alcohol-related harms, and supporting healthier communities. We provide expertise and resources on developing, planning and implementing alcohol-related interventions including policy, screening, labelling and advertising.
