This report is an overview of the development and validation of the Canadian Adolescent Gambling Inventory (CAGI), a survey instrument designed to measure gambling-related risk and harm. The research is a collaborative, two-phase initiative funded by a consortium of provincial funding
organizations, and conducted by a research team under the aegis of the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA). The goals of the initiative were to develop a conceptual framework and operational definition that accurately reflect adolescent gambling and, from these, derive a new instrument for use
in population surveys to identify adolescents experiencing problems associated with their gambling.
