Understanding substance use in the skilled trades – CAF national survey

December 1, 2022 | By Anthony Capkun

December 1, 2022 – The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum has been funded by Health Canada to conduct a study “to understand the extent and nature of substance use among apprentices and tradespeople, and the supports available to help support their well-being”.

“By hearing directly from apprentices and journeypersons, like yourselves, CAF-FCA hopes to develop a national communications strategy for apprentices that will provide effective tools and resources to support the health and well-being of apprentices and tradespeople,” says the national, non-profit association.

The anonymous survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. The deadline to participate is December 31, 2022, 11:59 pm ET.


Respondents who complete the survey will be entered into a provincial/territorial draw for a gift card valued at $100.

This study has been approved by the Health Canada Research Ethics Board, says CAF.

“Your perspective is vital to the project because we want to tailor our communication messages so they reach an apprentice audience,” adds CAF.
