Cannabis

As the second country and first large developed economy in the world to legalize recreational cannabis for adult use, Canada has the potential to be a world leader in the nascent global cannabis industry.

Our Position

For Canada to realize the economic benefits of being a first mover in the emerging global cannabis market, it must address government rules that are impeding job growth, investment and the ability of regulated companies to compete with the entrenched illegal market. By working with industry, governments can support increased economic growth and innovation in the cannabis industry while achieving their health and safety objectives.
