Workshop: Getting ready for legalized cannabis

June 3, 7 a.m. - 8:15 a.m.

Session summary

The legalization of non-medical cannabis will become a reality this summer, with significant implications for communities across the country. After all, it's in our communities where cannabis will be sold and consumed. Join us to learn more about what your municipality can do to prepare and explore some of the common challenges communities face. Hear from experts and your municipal colleagues about the policy and regulatory tools available to you to ensure that Canadians are safe and well-served in a world of legalized cannabis. Continental breakfast provided.

Moderators: Alyssa Bradly and Stephanie Ratjen, Young Anderson Barristers and Solicitors
