The major objectives of the Canadian Alcohol and Drugs Survey are to: measure frequency of alcohol use, measure frequency of cannabis use, measure frequency of use of other drugs and measure potential harmful effects of alcohol, cannabis and other drugs. Up until 2017, Statistics Canada conducted the Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CTADS), which collected data on tobacco as well as alcohol and drugs. Starting with the collection of the 2019 Canadian Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CADS), content on alcohol and drugs has been collected on its own. The Canadian Tobacco and Nicotine Survey (CTNS) has been conducted as a separate survey to collect data on tobacco and nicotine.
