Responsible Cannabis Use
All Canadian employers must consider the impact of cannabis legalization on work-related activities and travel. RCU – Responsible Cannabis Use and The Barrie Chamber have partnered to empower employers with CannEd, a cannabis e-learning course to educate employers and employees on cannabis facts, laws, and responsibilities.
Why is this important?
- 17% of Canadians consume cannabis (source)
- Approximately 13% of Canadian workers who are current cannabis users consumed cannabis before or during work (source)
How does education help?
- Educating employees and people managers at work ensures their safety and reduces employer liabilities
- An e-learning course allows employees to take the course based on their schedule and provides the employer with validation that they’ve reviewed and understood the information, as well as the employer’s specific policy
