Revision of alcohol consumption guidelines
Sep 08, 2022
Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) held a six-week, online public consultation on the current Low Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines (LRDGs) between March 8 to April 18 2021. The scope of this consultation was to understand the experiences of people in Canada with the current Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines and their needs and expectations for updated guidelines. It was open to all people in Canada including the general public, professionals and representatives from organizations with an interest in alcohol, health and well-being.
The Canadian Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines: Final Report has been released for a consultation as of Aug. 29, 2022.
The report also calls on Health Canada to require alcoholic beverage labels to indicate the number of standard drinks each contains, noting that research suggests Canadians have a limited understanding of what constitutes a standard drink.
