The Government of Canada is proceeding with the legalization of recreational cannabis. Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act is expected to come into full force and effect for July 1, 2018. An existing law related to medical use, the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) remains unchanged. While the legalization of cannabis will create exciting new business opportunities for the private sector in the province, it also brings with it new challenges for employers.
WorkSafe Saskatchewan, in partnership with Miller Thomson, MNP and the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce, has developed a video resource for employers to answer a number of questions surrounding the legalization of cannabis. This moderated panel discussion draws on the expertise of human resources and legal professionals. Watch it here.
