2023 federal budget supports community-based prevention

The 2023 federal budget includes “$20.2 million over five years, starting in 2023-24, to the Public Health Agency of Canada for a new community-based program to prevent substance use among young people”.  It is great news that the value of upstream prevention is being recognized in the budget.  PHAC is expected to provide detailed information on how the funding will be used in the fall of 2023.  For more information see  https://www.budget.canada.ca/2023/report-rapport/chap2-en.html
