Other Upcoming Events: Courses and Training Seminars
Cannabis legalization has arrived, with all the challenges it continues to pose to municipalities in Canada.
Municipalities continue to be responsible for a smooth roll-out to the public, with significant work still to be accomplished.
If you work on land use planning and zoning, business licensing, municipal workplace safety, enforcement relating to public consumption or impaired driving, you are feeling the pressure of these changes.
INFONEX's two-day program
Municipal Issues in the Legalization of Cannabis,
will be the ideal forum for discussing and sharing ideas with others to help you move forward without wasting time or spinning your wheels.
A faculty of experienced government officials from all the relevant areas will share their insights on what's working effectively and what's not.
U.S cities who have made the journey will draw on their experience to help you benefit from what they have learned along the way so you can avoid potential missteps and proceed in timely fashion.
You will learn what you can expect going forward, as well as lessons learned to date, including the impact on community and public health and safety.
You will leave with a clear picture of what you are required to do, as a municipal employer, to keep municipal employees safe now that you have to worry about the potential effects of marijuana at the workplace.
Experts from U.S. cities and large and small municipalities in a variety of provinces will explain how they are dealing with land use planning and zoning and business licensing (including government-run, private retail or a mixed retail model depending on the province's choice.)
You will understand the enforcement issues relating to consumption and impaired driving and the complexity and potential problems involved in the supply chain.
This is a unique opportunity to hear from those most able to provide the important information, insights and strategies you need to meet the complex challenge ahead.
Register now so you and your municipality have the necessary knowledge to reduce the risk and increase the potential benefits of this important change in national cannabis policy.
Your up-front investment of time will repay you time and again as you move forward more decisively, confidently and knowledgeably than you otherwise would have.
