Help us make a difference in the lives of Canadian families
The pandemic caused an increase in substance use among youth as a means of coping with the added stress and anxiety. The connections between youth mental health and substance use have never been more clear.
We’re here to help families.
To support the mental and physical health of youth, we educate, empower, and engage parents, caregivers and trusted adults with information, resources and practical tools in order to encourage and facilitate informed, meaningful and effective conversations with the kids in their lives about the health risks of substance use on youth.
Your donation helps us to create the resources, content and programs that provide parents with the help they need to ensure their kids’ resilience and safety from the harms of substance use.
Drug Free Kids Canada (DFKC) is a registered charity that receives no government funding and is totally dependent on philanthropic donations from corporations, foundations, and private citizens like you. A charitable tax receipt (unless otherwise specified) will be issued for all donations.
