About this Event

—-~FLASH SALE HAPPENING NOW! ~-—

Use promo code WKDFLASH during your ticket purchase for $5 tickets! Promo code Valid until 11:59pm on Sunday, February 24.

On October 17th 2018, Canada made history by becoming the second country in the world to formally legalize recreational cannabis. From a policy perspective, this was no small task, requiring collaboration across multiple sectors from both government and the greater community.

Nearly 5 months has now passed since legalization – so how have things been working out so far?

On March 1st, come join us in an interactive "living library" with diverse stakeholders to discuss how legalization has influenced their sector so far:

  • What is going right?
  • What is going wrong?
  • What have we totally missed

The ‘living library’ will take place from 7-8 PM, where you can rotate through conversations with local experts in healthcare, research, industry, law, and education. This a unique opportunity, not only for participants to learn about the complexity of cannabis legalization from different stakeholder perspectives, but also for stakeholders to hear back from their community about their questions and concerns.

Still have more to discuss? Following our ‘living library’, we will open the floor for the opportunity to network among our speakers and your fellow peers.

This is an all ages event and everyone is welcome! Buy your tickets before February 15 for the early bird price of $15, or $20 after February 15th. Use the promo code EARLYBIRD at checkout to get your discount. Use promo code STUDENT for a special student rate. Please reach out to us to inquire about group pricing.
