Making your choices and responsibility about the content
In accordance with the recommendations of Health Canada, the Canadian Association for Adolescent Health recognizes that health and sex education should be accessible to all and addresses all relevant subject areas. Effective health education recognizes that responsible individuals may choose a variety of paths to achieve health. They should have a right to accurate information that is relevant to those choices. Our web site reflects this basic right by presenting a broad spectrum of information in order to facilitate the ability to make knowledgeable choices. Issues related to health are sometimes complex and subject to differences of opinion. The purpose of our site is educational. We urge users to consider the information presented on this site and linked sites in the context of their own values and circumstances and to make personal choices that are informed and appropriate for yourself and your family.
