Canada FASD Research Network
The Canada Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Research Network (CanFASD) is a collaborative, interdisciplinary research network, with collaborators, researchers and partners across the nation. It is Canada’s first comprehensive national FASD research network and started as an alliance of seven jurisdictions and operated for seven years as the Canada Northwest FASD Research Network.
CanFASD’s unique partnership brings together many scientific viewpoints to address complexities of FASD, with a focus of ensuring that research knowledge is translated to community and policy action. Its mission is to produce and maintain national, collaborative research designed for sharing with all Canadians, leading to prevention strategies and improved support services for people affected by FASD.
ProServe was created to provide responsible liquor service training to licensees and their staff working in liquor service, retail businesses and the provision of security services in licensed premises in Alberta. It is applicable for staff working on-premises (bar, restaurant, private club or mass assembly venue), in a retail establishment or other in activities surrounding liquor service (delivery service, liquor sampling or a licensed public special event).
The program is designed to:
- Help licensees and staff fulfill social responsibilities
- Help achieve a balance between creating a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for patrons and reducing liability
- Help liquor industry workers understand and apply relevant liquor legislation
- Promote the responsible sale of liquor in service and retail environments
- Provide the knowledge to identify signs of intoxication and the techniques to effectively refuse or discontinue service
