Young People in Canada: Their Health and Well-being is the report based on data collected from the 2001/02 survey cycle for the World Health Organization Cross-National Collaborative Study: Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC). It examines the influence of factors that influence the health of young people aged 11 to 15 such as family relationships, peer relationships, school climate and self-concept on health behaviours. Behaviours covered by the survey include smoking, alcohol and drug use, physical activity/body image, emotional health, eating patterns, bullying and injuries.
