Cannabis At Work Conference – Greater Toronto Area

By |

You can register for day one, or day one and two combined. Space is limited on day two.

Day One; Conference (8am-4:30pm): Medical marijuana is a rapidly changing topic and has great implications for workplaces. Managing medical marijuana in the workplace is complex and requires specialized knowledge of medical cannabis, workplace policy and case law. Approaching recreational legalization adds another layer of challenges. This conference brings together a team of workplace experts to ensure you have the tools to mitigate risk in your organization.

Day One Agenda:

Registration & Breakfast | 8:00am
Opening Remarks | 8:30am
History of Cannabis in Canada | 8:45am
Demystifying Medical Cannabis | 9:30am
Networking Coffee Break | 10:30am
Spotlight on Safety | 11:00am
Lunch | 12:00pm
Workplace Case Law Update | 1:00pm
Networking Coffee Break | 2:30pm
Managing Recreational Cannabis | 3:00pm
Action Plan & Wrap Up | 4:00pm

Day Two; Master Class (10am-3:30pm): The Master Class is a small group, facilitated “working” class. SPACE IS LIMITED. In this workshop we will do a deep dive on your Drug & Alcohol Policy to ensure it is cannabis compliant. Participants will leave with a new draft of their policy. Participants will also leave with business processes for managing medical and recreational cannabis disclosures.

What to bring on day two: Participants must bring (electronically or physical copies) of their Drug & Alcohol policy, internal procedures on drug testing or other relevant polices/procedures/directives.

During the working class, participants will (with the assistance of the facilitator):

•Identify gaps in their current policy; deconstruct their Drug & Alcohol policy
•Identify what needs to be added or changed in their current policy; rebuild draft policy
•Create draft of internal procedures for managing cannabis disclosures
•Create a communication and education plan; identify steps to roll out new policy

Hosted by The City of Calgary with ISL Engineering and Land Services in Calgary Power Reception Hall

In the fall of 2017, The City is conducting engagement to gather feedback from key stakeholders and Calgarians about policy and regulation areas that are within The City’s control and responsibility. The City is looking for feedback to help inform changes and updates to affected Calgary bylaws, and input on the development of new bylaws and policies to respond to the legalization of cannabis.

The City will be hosting three (3) in-person stakeholder workshops (by invite only) and public feedback will be collected online. As a stakeholder with potential interest in the topic area, we invite you to attend one stakeholder workshop to share feedback on the following topics:

  • Business licensing
  • Community standards bylaws
  • Land use planning
  • Other affected bylaws

Space is limited so we ask that each organization send one representative to one of the workshops above. The discussion topics and content at each workshop will be the same.

If you, or other representatives of your organization are unable to attend one of the workshops, but would like to provide feedback, you may email Cannabis@calgary.ca. You will have the opportunity to provide your input online at engage.calgary.ca beginning November 20 until December 10, 2017.

If you have any questions about the legalization of cannabis engagement project, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

Cannabis Working Group
