Despite the significant progress made in recent years, many factors in the youth environment continue to promote tobacco initiation. Between 80% and 90% of current smokers started smoking before the age of 18. To address this issue, the Quebec Council on Tobacco and Health (CQTS) has been implementing a series of innovative and best practice initiatives for the prevention and cessation of smoking among young people for more than 20 years. SRDC was hired to support the evaluation processes of these initiatives by providing technical advice and training to the CQTS.
