Research and Publications

Case Study: Reducing youth alcohol harms in the community of Sherbrooke

  • This report, Youth Alcohol Use and Its Harms, presents an overview of the consumption habits of Sherbrooke youth and alcohol-related health problems. The report provides a potential course of action for other Canadian municipalities seeking to reduce alcohol-related harms among their youth and to support postsecondary institutions in their efforts to do the same. The preventative measures taken in Sherbrooke are based on the PEP-AH framework.


Research Study: What’s in an image?

  • Are the popular bars around your campus complying with national alcohol advertising standards? This study will ask students how well their favourite bars’ social media accounts measure up. The results of this study will help inform evidence-based recommendations for policies on alcohol advertising on social media.

Research Study: What do students think about heavy drinking?

  • This study will conduct focus groups to ask students what they think about heavy drinking. While in school, on what occasions do they think most students like to drink? What motivates them to drink before going out (i.e., pre-drinking)? What are the reasons some students may drink a lot? The results of this study should reveal a more nuanced understanding of the context and motivators that influence students’ drinking behaviours.

Environmental Scan: Campus survey questions about alcohol

  • In this document, the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) provides an inventory of alcohol-related questions extracted from campus surveys around the world. This inventory might be an essential reference to inspire PEP-AH members who may want to survey their students about their drinking behaviours.
