Thousands of students across Canada are taking part in the Cancer Risk Assessment in Youth Survey (CRAYS) to help researchers better understand health behaviours among young people.

CRAYS is implemented with the cooperation, support and funding of the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

CRAYS collects data on topics such as:

  • Tobacco use
  • Nutrition
  • Ultraviolet (UV) exposure
  • Bullying
  • School connectedness
  • Mental health

Our goal is to collect data which will inform government policy and practice, and help reduce cancer risk in Canadian youth.
