Canadian Executive Council on Addictions

The Canadian Executive Council on Addictions (CECA) is a national, non-governmental organization established in April 2002 to influence public policy on substance use. We offer:

  • A forum in which to develop common positions on substance use issues in Canada;
  • The ability to strengthen the capacity and knowledge of addictions executives at the federal, provincial/territorial and municipal levels;
  • An environment of collaboration to integrate diverse issues and improve addiction services across Canada; and
  • A means of delivering proactive advice to all three orders of government.
CECA is made up of senior executives of substance use agencies in Canada that have a legislated federal or provincial mandate or are recognized provincial authorities. Our founding members include the chief executive officers of the Kaiser Foundation (British Columbia), the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission, the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Ontario), and the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction.

What's New

In 2017, CECA will be updating the Cross-Canada Scan of Methadone Maintenance Treatment Policy Developments (2011), which explores policy strategies for addressing the rising demand across Canada for treatment of opioid dependence. Please consult the Request for Proposals for further details.
