Leading health organizations call for provincial alcohol strategy

In light of plans for increased alcohol availability across Ontario, a coalition of health organizations is calling on the Ontario government to develop a comprehensive alcohol strategy to address the health harms of alcohol. Such strategies have already been created in other provinces, including Alberta and Nova Scotia. 

The media release - released on September 21, 2015 - explains why Ontario needs an alcohol strategy and why the timing is right.

The coalition includes the following organizations:

  • Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse
  • Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario
  • Centre for Addiction and Mental Health
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada
  • Ontario Public Health Association
  • Registered Nurses Association of Ontario
