In June, September, and December 2020, 28 youth researchers from across BC collected over 3,500 surveys from their peers about their experiences with vaping during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our sincere thanks are due to the young people across BC who completed a survey and to the youth researchers who made it all possible!
The report of the findings, Youth vaping during COVID-19: BC youth’s experiences during the pandemic is available to download here. A PowerPoint presentation of the findings can be found here, and you can download the media release here.
Youth researchers created an infographic poster to share the results with parents. The poster is available to download here.
They also created a youth-led video presentation of the results. The video is available on McCreary's YouTube channel @McCrearyCentre. A companion guide designed as a tool to engage youth in a discussion about vaping is available to download here.
You can also find a video created by Russell Teibert, Vancouver Whitecaps Captain and McCreary Board Member, on our YouTube channel. In the video, Russell shares with youth what he’s learned through sport about life, facing adversity, and finding the people in your community who can help you succeed. Watch the video here.
