Getting Real: Cannabis @ Work

There is no ignoring the impact that legalization of recreational marijuana will have on your workplace. Across Canada, employers are facing a new reality which leaves many confused and uncertain how to implement policies that are compliant with the new legislation. In this workshop, we will discuss the various implications that need to be considered, the decisions that need to be made and the strategies that you will need going forward.


The morning session will share case law, resources and tools that will assist in the development of relevant policy. Topics to be covered include:

• Setting a corporate position on cannabis in your workplace
• The policy difference between medical marijuana and recreational use
• Understanding “safety sensitive” positions
• Substance Abuse: Discipline vs Accommodation
• Limitations of impairment and drug testing

Noon: Break for lunch. Lunch is provided.

The afternoon session will include a deep dive into your relevant policies applying the content learned throughout the day to review, edit and modify so that you leave with a draft policy in hand.

Coffee, tea, and light refreshments are also included

Respect in the Workplace: Is it really that difficult?

Without question, we are seeing a rise in bullying and harassment complaints in organizations, leading to a rise in investigations, a rise in stress leaves amongst employees, and in some cases the destruction of teams and organizational culture. As HR professionals, we know that this doesn’t have to be the case. Building a respectful workplace is often the key to creating a stronger, more positive culture where employees are valued, supported, and empowered to contribute their best on a daily basis.

In this workshop, learning topics will include:

  • developing an understanding of what a respectful workplace looks like and how to cultivate it as a manager;
  • how to manage performance with constructive feedback;
  • how to empower respectful behaviours and address disrespectful behaviours.
