  • Legal cannabis is here. Is your business ready?

After years of debate and discussion, the federal government has officially passed legislation to legalize cannabis, effective October 17, 2018. 

There is no question that this will have an impact on the workplace. Your business could be affected in many ways, no matter what sector you work in or how many employees you have. 

These resources will help you understand and prepare for legalization, and if you have any questions, our counsellors are just one call away.
