On October 17th, 2018, the federal Cannabis Act has made it legal to purchase, possess, consume and cultivate cannabis in Canada for recreational purposes.

Although federal laws set the stage for legalizing recreational cannabis use, provinces & territories, municipalities and employers can impose further restrictions. Before you partake, get familiar with the regulations in your area.


Despite federal and provincial regulations, municipal bylaws, and workplace policies, financial professionals will encounter situations where current rules are vague or simply do not exist. This is especially true for client facing professionals.
