government provides sound leadership.
Ø Any future national drug strategy

Ø Over the years, the intermittency of
funding has diminished the ability to co-ordinate and implement the strategy;
adequate resources and a long-term commitment to funding are needed if the
strategy is to be successful.
Ø Clear objectives for the strategy must be set out, and comprehensive evaluations of these objectives and the results are required.
Ø At the developmental stage, there is
a need to identify clear and shared criteria for “success”.
Ø The core funding for the CCSA has
been insufficient for it to carry out its mandate; adequate funding for the
CCSA is essential.
Ø There is a need for an independent
organization – the CCSA – to conduct national surveys at least every second

and similar time frames for provincially based school surveys.
Ø Coordination at the federal level

adopt a balanced approach – 90% of federal expenditures are currently allocated
to supply reduction.
