Health Canada releases Results of the 2020 Canadian Cannabis Survey

Health Canada published the results of its 2020 Canadian Cannabis Survey, providing a snapshot of Canadians’ knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours towards cannabis and its use.

Data was collected from April 30 to June 22, 2020. Results of the survey will help evaluate the impact of the Cannabis Act and inform policy and program development, and public education and awareness activities.

Here are some key findings of the 2020 Canadian Cannabis Survey:

  • More than half of those who use cannabis disclose using it three days a month, or less. (54% reported using cannabis three days per month or less, while 18% reported using cannabis daily.)
  • More than half of those who use cannabis choose to obtain it through legal sources. (41% reported legal storefront as their usual source, an increase from 24% in 2019, while 13% reported obtaining cannabis from a legal online source.)
  • Almost 8 in 10 Canadians feel they have access to trustworthy information to make informed decisions about cannabis use. (There is an increase from 71% in 2019 to 77% in 2020.)
  • Driving after cannabis use has decreased among those who reported past one-year cannabis use, compared to 2019 results.
