Cannabis Education Resources
Cannabis Education Resources consist of a collection of materials from leading experts that provide educators the support needed to increase their knowledge and confidence to teach cannabis education, and encourage students to make informed decisions that support their health and well-being.
Assisting both elementary and secondary educators, the resources address various topics including; legalization of cannabis in Ontario, creating safe and inclusive spaces, mental health and well-being, and substance use, addiction, and related behaviours. Health and Physical Education curriculum connections have also been made to resources where applicable. Additional resources will be added as they become available.
These evidence-based resources will provide educators the tools to assist students in developing their knowledge and skills to make informed decisions and reduce harms associated with cannabis use.
Ophea is currently in the process of developing further cannabis related education supports to address the gaps identified in our recent needs assessment and environmental scan. The intended release for this next resource is the 2019-2020 school year.
Cannabis Education Resources are also available in French as Ressources d’éducation sur le cannabis.
Ophea's Cannabis Education Resources are funded by Health Canada.
