Title:  Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey
(CSTADS)

Description:  

Health Canada has a requirement to carry out the 2014-2015
Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CSTADS)
following the existing methodology for the Youth Smoking Survey
(YSS) as closely as possible.  Data collection will be done by
means of a school-based survey. 

This is a study to help understand Canadian trends in tobacco,
alcohol and drug use vital to the effective development,
implementation and evaluation of strategies, policies and
programs aimed at addressing substance use and abuse. Effective
development and monitoring of programs aimed at reducing
substance use, and the regulation of tobacco products and
illicit drugs requires a regular measurement of progress. The
Youth Smoking Survey (YSS) has become a very important
surveillance tool for Health Canada and its partners in this
regard.

The target population for the CSTADS is all school children
attending grades 6 to 12 in Canada, excluding residents of the
Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and residents living on
First Nation Reserves. Students who are attending special
schools (e.g., schools for visually-impaired and
hearing-impaired) or who are attending schools located on
military bases will also be excluded from the population.  The
Contractor must try to obtain the participation of all 10
provinces. Data for a minimum of 42,000 youth in grades 6
through 12, on tobacco use, associated knowledge attitudes and
beliefs, and demographic information must be obtained. 
Additional data on drug and alcohol use must be obtained from
youth in grades 7 to 12 only. School-aged youth is generally
recognized as the population most at risk for experimenting with
tobacco products, alcohol and drugs. With a consistent measure
of student substance use it is possible to examine the factors
that influence youth behaviour with respect to smoking and
alcohol and drug use.

Final data sets with all supporting documentation (User Guide,
Codebook, and Frequency Tables) for the 2014-15 CSTADS in
English and French must be delivered to the Technical Authority
upon completion of the Contract. The 2014-15 survey must be
conducted in a manner that will provide seamless continuity with
previously collected YSS data.  The sampling and survey
methodology used in data collection for the 2010-11 YSS is
described in the 2010-11 User Guide attached as Appendix 1 to
Annex "A" to the Request for Proposal.  The Contractor's
sampling and survey methodology for conducting this 2014-15
survey must produce results that are consistent and comparable
to the results that would be produced by the methods described
in the 2010-11 sample

The work will commence January 01, 2014 to December 31, 2015
inclusive, with two (2) two year option periods.  The maximum
funding available for the initial period of the contract
resulting from the bid solicitation is $1,805,000.00 (Goods and
Services Tax or the Harmonized Sales Tax included).  The maximum
funding available for the first option period of two (2) years
one (1) is $1,841,100.00, and the maximum funding for the second
option period of two (2) years two (2) is $1,877,922.00, (Goods
and Services Tax or the Harmonized Sales Tax included) for a
total of $5,524,022.00
