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

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

Dispensaries ARE Indispensable

By

this is a protest to highlight the ongoing raids of medical cannabis dispensaries around the province thereby limiting patients access to their medicine. The province of Nova Scotia should legitimize medicinal cannabis dispensaries and regulate them, rather than solely endorsing a corporate model. This is but one of the potential atrocities that we can expect to see in politician’s current version of legalization that will negatively impact on the health and safety of critically and chronically ill patients!
