Video: Understanding Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines

Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines were created to help Canadian adults, who choose to drink alcohol, make informed choices about alcohol consumption to minimize associated short and long term health risks.

The guidelines aren’t about abstinence — they’re about rethinking your drinking to reduce alcohol-related harm. It is important to remember these guidelines are low-risk, not no-risk; they set limits, not targets.

Understanding what a standard drink is, what the guidelines are, and knowing when you should not drink at all will help you make more informed decisions around you alcohol drinking.
