2nd National Indigenous Cannabis & Hemp Conference
February 19 - February 22
Following the success of our inaugural conference Nov.18-21 on the Tsuut’ina Nation, we wish to personally invite you to the second National Indigenous Cannabis & Hemp Conference to be held on February 19-21, 2019, at the The Shaw Centre in Ottawa.
The passage of Bill C-45 legalizing recreational cannabis has created much debate within First Nations, Metis, and Inuit communities. The social, economic and health benefits will have an impact on each of our communities for generations to come.
It is important that we are all fully informed as to how the legalization of cannabis will affect our communities, from health and safety, to economic benefits, to our treaty rights and sovereignty.
This will be the first cannabis conference to feature leading Indigenous experts from the medical, legal, and business communities with proven experience in cannabis & hemp. The conference will include two days of in-depth presentations and panels, followed by an optional day to visit local cultivation, medical, and retail operations.
The opportunities for Indigenous communities are boundless. We invite you to join us to gather the information and ask the questions required to make responsible decisions for your community.
Further details and pre-registration will be available soon at www.NICHC.ca.
