The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA), a national, non-profit organization, has been funded by Health Canada to conduct a study about understanding substance use. The goal of the study is to understand the extent and nature of substance use among apprentices and tradespeople, and the supports available to help support their wellbeing.

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 wellbeing of apprentices and tradespeople. This study has been approved by the Health Canada Research Ethics Board.


Your perspective is vital to the project because CAF-FCA wants to tailor thier communication messages so they reach an apprentice audience. As a thank you for participating, they are offering multiple draws for $100.


Survey results are anonymous. Names for the prize draw are kept separately from the survey results.
