Alcohol harm is a serious and growing health concern and a leading cause of injury and death in Canada.
This past June, CIHI released a report and indicator on Canada wide variations of alcohol consumption and alcohol harm using CIHIs new Hospitalizations Entirely Caused by Alcohol indicator. The report also identifies populations at risk of harm and looks at provincial and territorial alcohol policies.
