Description

Marijuana Unwrapped – Don't Just Roll With It

Why the interest?

Medical cannabis authorizations continue to increase at an alarming rate across Canada, and with the legalization of cannabis scheduled for 2018, concerns are being raised regarding the impact this will have on employees and the workplace.

Join us for “Marijuana Unwrapped – Don't Just Roll With It”, on Tues. Oct. 24 in Calgary, AB, for an open-platform discussion that will feature industry experts presenting about the challenges of cannabis in the workplace. Presentation topics will include workplace drug policies, the effects of cannabis on one’s duty to perform safety sensitive roles and the legal/human rights considerations when implementing testing programs.

An open forum panel discussion will follow the presentations which will be moderated by Pat Atkins of Alberta’s Drug and Alcohol Risk Reduction Pilot Project (DARRPP) and include panel guests Paul de Jong of Progressive Contractors Association of Canada (PCA) and Mike Middlebrook from WestJet, in addition to our speakers.

This is your chance to learn from leading authorities about workplace challenges of cannabis, and hear real life stories of others in related industries, that share similar issues to you.

And when we say limited space available, we really mean it! Our last meeting sold out in 45 minutes!

The price of registration is $75 + applicable taxes per ticket.

If you have any question about the event, please contact Jeremy Thiel at jthiel@DriverCheck.ca.
