Live Webinar – Review of Proposed Cannabis Act

By |

The Government of Canada has indicated that it intends to bring the proposed Cannabis Act into force no later than July 2018. To support implementation of the proposed Act, regulations would need to be enacted in a range of areas, such as cannabis product standards and packaging and labelling requirements, to ensure that the risks and harms of cannabis are appropriately addressed under the legal framework.

In many cases, Health Canada is proposing to build upon established regulatory requirements that have been in place under ACMPR. This webinar aims to summarize the proposed changes from the current ACMPR regulation and to provide an understanding of “proposed Cannabis Act”.
