Vision

The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) Canada envisions a world where psychedelics and marijuana are safely and legally available for beneficial uses, and where research is governed by rigorous scientific evaluation of their risks and benefits.

MAPS Canada envisions global education based on science and cultural reintegration for the beneficial uses of psychedelics and marijuana.
