Public Health Agency of Canada's Forum

Building a blueprint for action for school communities to help prevent substance use harms.

We were pleased to have the opportunity to present the work of VoxCann at the Public Health Agency of Canada’s School Matters Forum. We shared our "by and for youth" approach with key stakeholders in education, public health policy and community organizations, encouraging groups to explore the ways in which youth cannabis education could be bidirectional and centre youth voices and priorities. We also discussed the different ways in which harm reduction could be practiced and the value of creating spaces for in-depth discussion and sharing on youth’s experiences around cannabis use.
