Alcohol and Health in Canada: A Summary of Evidence and Guidelines for Low-Risk Drinking

This document is intended for health professionals, policymakers, communication experts and members of the public who may wish to be informed about low-risk use of alcohol, whether for themselves or to advise others. The summary of evidence provided here and the proposed Canadian Guidelines for Low-Risk Drinking have both been developed by an independent expert working group with members drawn from Canadian addiction research agencies. The document has also been significantly strengthened by a process of international peer review conducted by three invited experts on alcohol epidemiology and feedback from concerned individuals and organizations.
