Abstract In 2002, as part of the restructuring to improve health care delivery in the Canadian Forces (CF), the health promotion program, Strengthening the Forces (STF), was enhanced within the CF Health Services Directorate of Force Health Protection (DFHP) which included an addictions awareness and prevention (AAP) component. In March 2008, the Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) officially launched a CF Health and Physical Fitness Strategy which advocates for an addiction-free lifestyle. Based on best practices and the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion s priority action areas, the AAP section developed a comprehensive strategy in four program areas, specifically, alcohol, use of other drugs, gambling and tobacco use. Key addictions awareness and prevention activities are discussed and the current program evalution framework is presented.
