Cannabis in the Workplace

On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act (also known as Bill C-45) came into force. This federal legislation legalized recreational cannabis use nationwide in Canada in combination with its companion legislation Bill C-46, An Act to Amend the Criminal Code. Employers and employees must be informed of the issues posed by cannabis in the workplace.
