In light of Canada’s legalization of recreational cannabis on October 17, 2018, experts from the Lex Mundi member firms in Canada will present a complimentary live overview of the regime regulating the cultivation, distribution and sale of recreational cannabis and the different approaches taken by various Canadian provinces. The webinar will include a commercial emphasis on what both Canadian and foreign participants looking to invest in the burgeoning industry need to know.
The program will start with a short introduction to the federal regime (including the key provisions of the Cannabis Act), followed by an in-depth comparison of how each of the following regions are implementing the new legislation:
- British Columbia
- Atlantic Canada
Experts from each of Lex Mundi’s Canadian member firms (Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, Farris Vaughan Wills & Murphy LLP, McInnes Cooper and Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP) will share their insights and be available for a brief question and answer session at the end of the webinar.
