Medical marijuana in the workplace is a rapidly emerging and highly contentious issue. And now the Canadian Government has announced its plan to legalize Cannabis for non-medical recreational use in 2018.

The topic of marijuana access and its use is sensitive, complex,and highly polarized with issues and implications for health and safety. Employers have questions about how to respond to this new landscape. What changes will have to be made to existing policies and procedures? What if employees’ recreational use off-duty affects workplace performance?

This session is aimed at helping employers to understand the changes, the implications to health and safety, and to provide guidance on how to manage these challenges in safety sensitive industries. Plan to attend this informative session and bring your questions.
