Cannabis Project- ONECA - The Ontario Native Education Counselling Association are looking for youth advisors.

The Ontario Native Education Counselling Association (ONECA) are developing culturally appropriate learning resources and training materials related to recreational cannabis use and vaping for counsellors, teachers, and other school staff. The resources would support the needs of, and address issues faced by, Indigenous students across the province. We need youth to have a voice in this project by sharing their experiences. We are looking for youth whom both use and abstain from Cannabis use, to act as youth advisors in order to spread awareness on the realities of recreational cannabis and vaping faced by Indigenous youth. Another main objective of the project is to identify culturally appropriate pro-social alternatives to recreational cannabis use, such as community involvement, arts, sports, traditional and land-based activities; youth engaged in these activities are highly encouraged to apply.

We are currently working with ONECA to make resources for parents and educators on the effects of recreational cannabis use, and to show culturally appropriate alternatives for the youth. We are hoping to get lots of participation from the community. In our current phase, we are looking for seven youth with all levels of experience with cannabis, that are users and non-users to participate in our project. We have attached the application form below. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
