Leave The Pack Behind’s Annual Wouldurather…Contest for Young Adults

Leave The Pack Behind, a program funded by the Government of Ontario to help young people to make positive changes to their tobacco use behavior, is currently promoting its effective and successful wouldurather… contest.

Back for the 17th year, this contest challenges Ontario young adults (ages 18–29) to quit, cut back, or stay smoke-free from commercial tobacco for a 6-week period from January 29-March 11, 2018. This year, there is $10,000 in cash prizes to be won! Any Ontario resident between 18-29 years can enter the contest online at www.wouldurather.ca. Registration for the contest closes January 28th, 2018.

The wouldurather…contest is proven to help 20% of contestants to quit smoking, this is amazing compared to the 5% who quit cold turkey. The wouldurather…contest uniquely offers four (4) categories to meet participants where they are at; contestants can choose to quit, cut back by half, cut out smoking when drinking/partying or renew a decision to stay smoke-free. To support young adults to quit or cut back successfully, the contest also offers contestants the option to receive support emails, add a personal support crew, access 8-weeks of free nicotine patch or gum, and get proactive support calls or texts from Smokers Helpline.

Leave The Pack Behind is asking communities and organizations who may work with young adults to support contest promotion by disseminating wouldurather… contest posters and palm cards, posting electronic promotions (such as web banners, LCD screen ads, etc.), or by circulating communication via email listservs.

If you would like additional information or would like to receive print or electronic promotional material, please contact Leave The Pack Behind directly.

Cambodia's 1st Creative Arts Therapy & Wellbeing Conference - January 16-18, 2018
CFHS Canadian Link Conference, December 4-6 in Ottawa!

What is the CFHS Canadian Link Conference?

#LINK2017 is an innovative new conference that will examine the link between violence against people and animals, looking at the vulnerabilities in both populations and how they connect. If you aren’t familiar with the violence link, it’s the proven link between violence against animals and people. This can manifest in many ways, including a pet being harmed or killed after a woman leaves an abusive relationship or a serial killer practicing abuse on animals before moving on to human beings. Over the last decade, this pattern has come to be known as the violence link.

This event will bring together key Canadian sectors that work to prevent and address violence against people or animals for cross-sector training on how to stop the cycles of abuse. This is the first national conference of its kind in Canada, and it promises to kick-start much-needed action on violence.
