For the first time ever, Canada has one set of low-risk alcohol drinking guidelines for the entire country. Developed for Canadians of legal drinking age who choose to drink alcohol, these guidelines are informed by the most recent and best available scientific research and evidence. Their aim is to provide consistent information to help Canadians moderate their alcohol consumption and reduce immediate and long-term alcohol-related harm.
If all Canadian drinkers consumed alcohol within these guidelines, alcohol related deaths would be reduced by an estimated 4,600 per year!
