Cannabis is Legal in CanadaNow What?

Presented by Dan Demers, CSAPA, Director of Business Development, CannAmm Occupational Testing Services & President of SAPAA

Cannabis in the workplace is a rapidly growing and highly contentious issue, especially for countries where recreational access and medical access are becoming far more ubiquitous.  The Canadian Government has legalized cannabis for non-medical recreational use, active since October 17, 2018.  The topic of cannabis accessibility and consumption is sensitive, complex, and highly polarized with issues and implications for health and safety.  Both domestic and international employers, third-party administrators, laboratories, MROs, collection networks, and regulators have questions about how to respond to this new landscape.  This webinar is aimed at simplifying the legal, industry, and scientific best practices to eliminate the complexity of this momentous change.

This webinar aims to answer the following questions and provide clear guidance within Canada:

  • Risk versus impairment, cannabis versus alcohol—what’s the difference?
  • What are the obligations employers have to due diligence and safety?
  • What compliance standards are acceptable for managing risk (fitness for duty)?
  • Where do labor law, human rights, and privacy fit within a global program?
  • How do we address the potential of employees’ recreational use off-duty, as it affects workplace performance?
  • What policy, education, training, and compliance approaches are most acceptable in this new age? 

This session focuses on best practices, based on a recent legal publication, published in Volume 56, Issue 2 of the Alberta Law Review, and is the first of its kind.  The goal is to help third-party administrators and global employers to understand the necessities for fit for duty compliance, the unmentioned implications for workplace health and safety, and to provide clear “insight to action” solutions.
