As each province and territory has developed its own distinct curriculum frameworks, including specific courses, content standards and learning expectations, this unit has been designed to be general enough to meet many of the different criteria for health and physical education courses across Canada. 

This guide is designed for use in Grades 9 through 12. Although the material is intended primarily for use in Health and Physical Education courses, it may also fit well with a number of other curriculum areas, including: Personal Development, Family Living, Child Studies, Psychology and Sociology.
