What is PEP-AH?

The Postsecondary Education Partnership — Alcohol Harms is a group of universities and colleges from across Canada, partnered with the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) and Universities Canada.

PEP-AH is a network of campuses that have their own capacity for researching and fully understanding the drinking culture on campus, as well as the best practices to reduce harms.
