Call for proposals: Health Canada’s Substance Use and Addictions Program

Health Canada’s Substance Use and Addictions Program (SUAP) provides contribution funding for projects that respond to drug and substance use issues in Canada.

Through this one stage and one-time national call for proposals, SUAP is seeking applications for projects that can help to prevent, treat or reduce the harms associated with opioids, stimulants, alcohol, prescription drugs, and other potentially harmful substances.

  • People with needs that are often unmet by existing services;
  • Regions where there may be gaps in services available;
  • Groups at heightened risk of substance-related overdoses;

  • People who work with and advocate on behalf of those impacted.
